Griffin Community Trust


The Griffin Community Trust is a unique and pioneering project that has brought together Medical and Dental students from BLSMD & local residents in London's East End.

Hi all, 

The purpose of this volunteer group is to combat isolation by getting involved in the Tower Hamlets community. 

Our volunteers work with Toynbee Hall day centre where we helpout at events, teach english, take part in a befriending scheme and much more. There are some limitations in what we can do due to COVID but we're doing our best and it's great fun! This open to all students.

We have a separate scheme that brings Medical and Dental students together with the residents of Shaftesbury lodge. Where we've established a tight knit community through befriending schemes and events. This is limited to 23 medical and dental students only. They are provided flats at a subsidised rate to make London living more affordable on the premise that they do their bit to make our little community great!
