About In-Deep’s Story & Vision

In-Deep Community Task Force is a registered charity that works mainly with elderly people and children with special needs in South Westminster and Lambeth, London; offering friendship and helping tackle isolation by way of a range of activities and services to people living in the area, as many have no family, or family that live far away, and are on low incomes.

One of the main aims of In-Deep Community Task Force is to promote friendship and understanding to combat loneliness and isolation.

How In-Deep was founded:

The charity In-Deep was founded by Colin Chapman who spent a short period of his life sleeping rough in South Westminster.

During that time, Colin became friends with many elderly and local residents who helped him by way of kindness.

After he came through his own problems Colin wanted to do something for the community. So, In-Deep was set up.

Colin was awarded the MBE for founding In-Deep and for services to the community of South London in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List of 2012. This was an immense honour and is a real inspiration to all those involved with In-Deep.

It is run by a group of trustees and its activities are run solely by volunteers, including employee volunteers, volunteers with disabilities, students and people from the local area.

The In-Deep Mission Statement:

“Our vision for the future is to extend our activities to different boroughs in London, where people can come to our activities and receive friendship.

“At the different boroughs, there will be a range of activities and services that the community could participate in.”

In-Deep volunteers were also thrilled to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2013; which is the biggest award possible to win for volunteers of any charity. Read more about In-Deep’s Awards & Achievements
