Save Evelyn 190 Centre

Evelyn 190 Centre will close its doors on 31st July 2019 as Lewisham Council will no longer be funding the project. This will have a detrimental effect on the vulnerable residents of the borough that require advice and advocacy at critical moments in their lives.

We believe that rights and responsibilities are inseparably linked and we endeavour to give access to rights and services to enable the community to fulfil their goals. Funding from Lewisham Council will enable the Centre to continue to provide assistance (through advice and advocacy) to the vulnerable residents of the borough.

I started this petition because…
Evelyn 190 Centre was formed in 1979 with the purpose to provide high quality, specialist advice and advocacy services in the Borough of Lewisham with the view to tackle the causes of poverty; minimise the impact of social deprivation resulting from unemployment, low income, poor housing and deprivation of all kinds.

We achieve our main activities through a dedicated team of specialist advisers in Housing, Welfare Benefits, Debt and Employment.
