OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
Acton Homeless Concern
Acton Homeless Concern is a local charity with two drop-in day centres providing help, advice, and support not only for the homeless but also for anyone in need. International School London has a long-established relationship with the centre that is at the heart of our community. Through an initiative of the Mother Tongue Department every winter we collect warm pre-loved clothes for those in need, like jumpers, trousers, shoes, socks hoping to bring some light in the life of those in need. At present, Acton Homeless Concern is in need of male clothes.
How you can help?
1 - send us your pre-owned clothes. Please kindly send only clean clothes.
2 - purchase the 'MT sock for a homeless person' item from our e-Market. We will take all profits from these sales to purchase warm clothes and donate to Acton Homeless Concern.
3 - donate plastic containers
Students in the Grade 8 and Grade 9 Communication classes have been studying the importance of inclusion and what that looks like in their own communities. They are creating historical narratives that engage patrons of Gunnersbury Park – together, we’re looking at the interesting historical significance that Gunnersbury Park holds, and sharing it across languages with the many local and global visitors. Translating signage is also part of creating an inclusive space where all people feel welcome and can enjoy navigating around the park.
