What are you good at?

There are lots of different ways you can get involved. Maybe you’d like to be part of making things happen, you have a great idea or you’d just like to find out what’s going on. It's not about going to loads of boring meetings, although meetings are important too.


Maybe you’d like to help out at events, workshops or other activities?


Perhaps you can bring your experience, knowledge and skills to one of the key themes that has been identified:
• Social Investment & Small Grants
• Health & Well-being
• Education, Training & Employment
• Community & Belonging
• Parks & Green Spaces
• Routes out of Poverty


No one can do everything, but everyone can do something... What are you good at doing?

Get Involved

Why don’t you come along to a ChART meeting and find out what’s going on?

Just sit and listen, or have a say... It's your community money after all!

What's On:


ChART Yoga with Geny

Face to face classes are temporarily cancelled in line with current advice. But watch this space! We are very excited that Geny is preparing some online video classes for us!

ChART Community Food Project

Update from our Food Project Team on 25/03/2020:
"Our food project was open today at WG Grace Community Centre for our visitors, and we were able to give out two weeks’ food supplies to all that come along.
We will now be closed for a week, but this could change. ChART will be investigating all areas in order to reopen and continue our food project on Wednesdays at midday. We are sorry for any inconvenience, as we try our very best to get food supplies.
If you need to contact Citizens advice Lewisham we have been informed that the advice line will be available in the next couple of days, the number is 0800 231 5453.
For additional support in Lewisham, including befriending, help with deliveries and access to food parcels / foodbanks please phone 03330 150378 or visit the website for further details."
