St Albans is a medium-sized charity, providing a wide range of services to the local community. The charity was established in 1983, with the commitment of a number of people, including Pat Ryan and Beryl Chandler. The organisation is funded by several means, including the local authority, individual grant funders, donations and charges for services.
At St Albans we aim to meet the needs of each individual child. St Albans pre-school is OfSTED registered and an OfSTED inspection in July 2010 was deemed “Good”.
Our Friend is Your Friend is a Big Lottery funded programme that provides regular face-to-face contact to those who have become, or are at risk of becoming socially isolated.
In the Lunch Club, we have many partnerships including The Friendship Club and BUDS where staff and volunteers work together to deliver this social service.
