Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust was set up by Greenwich Council in 2014 to manage historic buildings in the borough, including Charlton House, the Assembly Rooms, and the Tudor Barn in Eltham, as well as the borough archives and war memorials.
News from Charlton House about its involvement in a new scheme providing support for local residents with learning disabilities:
Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust is delighted to announce that Charlton House has been confirmed as A Safe Place, part of a network of shops, cafes, museums and heritage buildings around the Royal Borough of Greenwich where any local resident with a learning disability can go for help should they need it.
With funding from the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), support from the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Metropolitan Police, the Safe Place Scheme was set up by Advocacy in Greenwich.
Charlton House as a heritage building at the heart of the borough is proud to have joined this new initiative and scheme, providing support or shelter should anyone feel scared, intimidated or unsafe.
