Pecan is a charity based in Peckham, south east London. Our services are designed to help build a stronger community. We never stop believing that with the right support, people can unlock their potential.

We believe communities are stronger when people work together. That’s why we take practical action to meet people’s needs through: Employment support, Community services and Resettlement

We work primarily with surrounding communities in Southwark as well as people from across London. Since 1989 we’ve seen over 27,000 clients through our programmes. These include:         ex-offenders and their families, refugees and asylum seekers, young people and the long-term unemployed.


Here at Pecan we’re grateful for all the support we get. Our service simply couldn’t run without the generosity of your donations.

When you make a donation to Pecan you show someone a kindness that encourages belief in community, and hope for a better future.



At Pecan we love to meet new people. If you’re interested in our service or have any questions about one of our projects, then don’t hesitate to get in contact with us. Likewise, if you’re a business owner, or run another charitable project and you think that you might want to partner with Pecan for a specific aim, then we’re all ears. Look forward to hearing from you!
