Bishop Creighton House has an interesting history, having been founded in 1908 in memory of Bishop Mandell Creighton, a Bishop of London who was concerned with local people who were living in over-crowded and unsanitary conditions. A book detailing the history is available for £7.50 - you can find the details here.
If you would like to volunteer with one of the centre's projects, you can find out more and download volunteer application packs at the website.
