Peckham Settlement - London SE15

Peckham Settlement - London SE15
Settlements were charitable organisations with a base in a deprived area, usually providing community facilities, supported by benefactors from more well-off areas or institutions. In this case the Union of Girls' Schools was resourced by a group of fee-paying girls schools. Students from the schools would volunteer to run children's holiday schemes, youth clubs and similar activities. In more recent times the settlements have become community run centres.
