Convoy 2000 is a charity run by volunteers from the Metropolitan Police,  Essex Police and the London Probation Service.

The projects completed are two IT skills centres,  a Mini Orphanage and a Hostel for street children,  a retail shop and Carpentry Shop to fund the running of a soup kitchen. Current projects are at three orphanages,  a School for the Deaf,  School for the Blind and at an isolated village School. Two hospitals and a home for the elderly.
