P.E.C.A.N stands for Peckham Evangelical Churches Action Network.
“Pecan is a charity with the vision to see the
lives of those we work with transformed. Working with vulnerable groups such as ex-offenders, their families, refugees and asylum seekers, young people, those with mental health issues and the long term unemployed, they seek to enable each individual to achieve their full potential and through that to see transformation in the community. Pecan has offices in Peckham and Elephant & Castle. In 2009 Pecan impacted over 1,300 lives for good.
Pecan came into existence because churches in Peckham had a passion for seeing the transformation of a deprived area that was struggling with high levels of unemployment. Ever since its inception in 1989, churches have consistently been the back bone of Pecan, under girding its work through their giving, prayer, assistance with recruitment of staff and volunteers, and their wisdom.”
