Charities

There are many national charities which help people with particular disabilities, health problems, or in particular situations. You can find many of these charities here. There are also local charities that work just in Wandsworth or across south west London. For example, Wandsworth Carers' Centre supports carers, Age UK Wandsworth helps older people, and Voiceability offers advocacy services.

Some charities offer support for particular things. For instance, the Disability and Social Care Advice Service (DASCAS) offers impartial advice about benefits and social care.
