The Furzedown Project was established in 1975 by the late Dr. Norman Levinson, and was designed as a self-help, user-led organisation. Forty-seven years later we are committed to carrying on this important work for people living in Furzedown / London Borough of Wandsworth.
Our activities and services are for any person who is aged 50 and over, living within the local community. We aim to increase people’s sense of wellbeing and reduce social isolation. At our centre on Moyser Road we run up to 20 sessions that are aligned with our five core areas of wellbeing.
Our centre is open Monday – Friday from 09:30am – 16:30pm and have special events on occasional evenings and weekends. We can also offer transport for those people who live in Furzedown and require the service.
To maintain our services for the community, and develop new activities, we ask participants to contribute an annual membership fee of £20 and £2 to attend any of our activities. This money makes a huge difference, and we are grateful to all our members for their ongoing contribution. We can also offer concessions for these fees if you are struggling financially.
Our work is also helped by our volunteers, who support us on Reception, Transport, Befriending, and leading our activity sessions.
