GivingTuesday is a day when people around the world come together to give back. As a local award winning Christian charity we remain committed to supporting older people in our community who are struggling with isolation and loneliness.
With funding and donations only covering 50% of our annual expenses, we rely on generous donors to make up the difference.
Please would you consider an amount that fits your budget.
Together, we’ll continue to reach out and make a difference in our community.
Your gift, large or small, makes a difference.
It will help us to support clients with a befriender in life’s stressful moments by being alongside for a hospital visit, or other appointment where a friendly presence is needed.
The feedback we receive from families and clients shows how much this is appreciated.
“The visits gave my aunt a sense of value & provided much needed companionship”
There are many reasons for social isolation, but one of the most common is a fear of venturing out alone.
Our Falls Prevention Exercise Programme was set up in response to this.
The Programme is suitable for those who had become housebound either because they had had a fall or because they had a fear of falling and lost their confidence to get out and about.
The programme has helped hundreds of clients over the past ten years to exercise regularly, make lasting friendships and build their confidence.
Coming to classes makes a real difference as feedback from clients shows.
“I feel so much more confident now and it’s nice to meet new people”
“The teachers are wonderful & meeting others certainly keeps your spirits up”
