WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

We are a volunteer-led humanitarian charity organization based in London called Divine Rescue. We help the homeless, ex-offenders, sex workers, vulnerable people and people in crisis within the community. When the crisis is over, we help people recover and move on with their lives, we intend to extend our reach further to other areas of London and the UK. We have a strong team of dedicated volunteers that have helped and supported many people turn their lives around. Helping people come off drugs, helping resolve alcohol related issues, tackling and educating people about antisocial behaviour, rehabilitation of ex-offenders, sex workers.   

We have been supporting the homeless and those who are less privileged in our community with foods, clothes, hostel referrals, hospital visit, support with bereavement, counselling advice, dealing with other agencies and sign posting them where they can find information to help them turn their lives around.   
  

We also provide National Vocational Qualification training via our affiliates to help people be more self-sufficient and become a valued member of society. Initially we started our project from a bench in 2005 at East Street, Southwark, and with the help of our committed team of volunteers and with support from Red Ochre, The Southwark Police and former NDC, we were able to expand. We have recently acquired a new office at 37 Great Russell Street, WC1B 3PP in 2019.
