About us

CARENET is a mature, respected community-based charitable organisation providing culturally and linguistically appropriate social and mental health services for the borough's low-income disadvantaged populations, with an emphasis on East Africans, and other newly arrived immigrant groups.

The entire CARENET staffs are bi-cultural and bilingual, representing more than 5 African languages and dialects. No other organization in Lambeth has the breadth, depth, or length of experience providing supportive services to newly arrived refugees from war-torn countries in East Africa although not exclusively.Our services include education, outreach, advocacy, supportive services, substance abuse and mental health counselling and treatment, leadership development, and individual and community economic development. These community-based services are designed to support newcomers during the difficult, complex, and stressful processes of acculturation, build self sufficiency among immigrant populations, and socially and economically empower disenfranchised members of ethnic minority groups.CARENET volunteers and staffs are working community centres, schools, and other locations accessible to our community. We have a long and successful history of outreach and education programs to the new immigrant populations and sub-categories of families, young people, working mothers, seniors, and persons with disabilities, and small business owners, many of whom are monolingual.

Our office is open Monday to Friday 10 AM to 5 PM
