Information about services at St Luke's in response to the coronavirus pandemic

Our Community Centre in Central Street is currently closed to the public but as always our priority is supporting those who are most vulnerable in our community, including frail and isolated pensioners, residents experiencing financial difficulties and households affected by sickness. 

In response to this we’re pleased to announce we are working with our partners and volunteers to deliver the following community support during this difficult time:

  • Nutritious lunches delivered to homes five days a week;
  • Food parcels available for delivery and collection;
  • Telephone befriending for those feeling isolated;
  • Use of computer and telephone to apply for benefits or seek advice by appointment;
  • Use of computers in our online centre for any use by appointment 10am or 11am, Mon-Fri;
  • Small amounts of essential printing and photocopying can be done by appointment;
  • Emergency Cloudesley welfare grants for those with long-term health problems;
  • Volunteering opportunities to support your community;
  • Information Helpline 020 7549 8181 from 9am-3pm Monday-Friday.

If you need to know more about any of these services, please ring the Information Helpline. Please be aware we have limited staff and resources at this challenging time, so priority will be given to those in greatest need living in our south Islington area of benefit.

St Luke’s will be following Public Health guidance in the delivery of all its services including social distancing, hand washing and working from home whenever possible. The closure of the Centre will be reviewed regularly over the coming weeks. Keep up-to-date with current information on this website.

In the meantime we will be updating InstagramTwitter and Facebook with information about what is going on at St Luke's. Please like and share our posts.

We wish all our supporters the very best at this difficult time and we look forward to seeing you in the Centre when we open again.
