About us

Christian CARE is a charity working in the London Borough of Merton. We are a group of 60 volunteers, many from churches of different denominations across Merton, who want to show care and concern for our neighbours as Jesus did. We are supported by churches, schools, women’s groups and many individuals in the Borough and across the UK. We welcome and offer help to anyone whatever their race, colour or religion. Each year we support around 160 families whose lives are in crisis.

Covid-19 Update

In Christian CARE we want, in every way we can, to continue to care for and support all our families and our volunteers, and to work alongside other organisations to reach out to the local community. However for everyone’s safety we have to follow government advice and this has meant changes to our services.


We closed the OFFICE on 19 March 2020 and it remains closed with the members of the CARE Committee and the Administrator working from home. You can contact us through the Office email - christiancaremerton@gmail.com or by phoning the mobile 07932 628840.

Please do not use the Office phone or the Furniture Project mobile.


We continue BEFRIENDING families and keeping in touch with our volunteers by phone, email, text and outdoor meetings. We hope for face-to- face meetings soon.

Our FURNITURE PROJECT is now working again but observing social distancing guidelines. We hope to recruit new volunteers soon so that we can increase the number of collections and deliveries.

We are continuing our FAMILY SUPPORT and the work of the BABY, CHILDREN’S and HOUSEHOLD PROJECT, observing social distancing guidelines. We know that this means so much for many families. If we are unable to help we will try to signpost you to another local organisation.

Please click here for ways you can donate and share in our work as we face not only continuing but also growing needs as a result of Covid-19.

Complaints Procedure

The Christian Care Association is committed to providing the best possible service to all with whom it comes into contact - clients, volunteers and organisations. If any Christian CARE Association action or failure to act has had an adverse effect on you, you have a right to complain. Usually a word with the person concerned will suffice should a problem arise. However, we recognise that from time to time there may be occasions where clients, volunteers or organisations feel that the quality of service falls short of what they could reasonably expect. We want to know about these occasions so that we can resolve the problem and plan to avoid its repetition.

For complaints specifically related to a breach of data privacy, see our Privacy Policy.

For further information please contact our Honorary Secretary.
