At Time & Talents, we know that ‘community’ doesn’t just happen by itself. It has to be nurtured, supported, and brought together. Most of all, the most isolated and vulnerable people in our society can so easily be left out. And for 133 years, T&T has been working to make sure that nobody is left out, and that everybody feels part of a community.

Founded in 1887 to support the people of Rotherhithe and Bermondsey, today Time & Talents runs social, art and learning-based activities for all ages, targeted activities working with people with high levels of need such as isolated elderly people and disabled groups, and universal wider projects and events designed to create a happy, healthy, connected community. We believe that fun, friendships, and mutual support make a happier, healthier community where everyone is included. Find out more.

Due to the coronavirus crisis, both of Time & Talents’ venues are closed. However, our staff are still very much at work whilst working remotely. We are in regular telephone contact with hundreds of local people who usually come to T&T activities/groups, and are responding to urgent need wherever we can with our amazing existing volunteer team.

We’ve also been delighted at the volume of new volunteering applications we’re getting and we welcome more to apply here:

Staff are working as fast as they can to process these applications and then make hundreds of phone befriending matches, to keep our community connected and battle the isolation that this crisis is creating for many of us. Please visit our website News page for updates and call the team on 020 7231 7845 if you need us.

Best wishes
