The Trustees of the Lewisham Parochial Charities consider Grant applications at Trustee meetings.
Whilst the Trustees try and help as many people as possible, this is not always possible due to the number of people applying and the funds available. You may find the following page from London Borough of Lewisham’s website useful, which lists other charitable organisations who also can supply furniture, beds, etc, to those on low incomes or those in need.
