Community

Active in London since 1978, the Junior League of London works to build better communities by improving the lives of local families in need.  During our 35 year history in London, the JLL has delivered hundreds of thousands of hours of community service and contributed over a million pounds towards volunteer training initiatives and towards direct support for the London community.

In 2008, we adopted our current community focus of poverty.  The Junior League continues to work towards its vision of eliminating poverty and its effects in London, concentrating on breaking the cycle of poverty through education and employment.

In the 2016-17 League year, we have:

  • Served 1,765 meals to the homeless
  • Sorted 4,458kg of food
  • Sent 3,200 mailings for the Manna Centre
  • Helped 105 women learn English during Literacy Lunches
  • Painted 3 rooms at SmartWorks
