Welcome to the DRescue website, where you will find information on how we provide help & support for the homeless, people in crisis & other vulnerable groups. We are a volunteer-led humanitarian charity organisation based in Southwark, South London.
Among those we help are: ex-offenders, sex workers & those with current personal crisis. Where we can help people beyond their crisis, we support their recovery & help them move on with their lives. We ultimately intend to extend our reach further into other areas of London & the UK.
We have a strong team of dedicated volunteers that have helped & supported many people turn their lives around e.g. helping people come off drugs; resolving alcohol related issues; tackling & educating people about antisocial behaviour; rehabilitation of ex-offenders, sex workers etc. We also provide National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) training via our affiliates to help people be more self-sufficient & become a valued member of society.
How We Use Your Donations:
As with all organisations, DRescue must cover its overheads, running costs & administration. These will cover things, for example, such as premises, utilities, insurances, staff costs, food collections etc. Once these, & any extraordinary costs have been met, 100% of any donations/ fundraising/ sponsorship we receive goes towards supporting our clientele.
We do this by empowering clients that are ready for, & in need of training. Some of the funding is used to add to the clothes donated for clients e.g. buying toiletries, underwear & socks etc., i.e. the simple things that are sometimes forgotten. We sometimes purchase travel passes to allow clients to attend necessary appointments e.g. housing, GP’s, interviews, Jobcentre etc.
