Support hundreds of older people
We urgently need financial help. Our income is largely made up of hall hire and room rents and this pays for our range of services to older people and for our low-cost psychotherapy service. That income has gone and we are left only with grants from other charities – less than half of what we need. But our services have never been more needed and since mid-March, before the official lock-down, we have been in over-drive with:
Calls and emails
Calls and emails to 800+ older people – checking in and chatting (especially with those most isolated), helping with a wide range of problems and issues (getting food, medications, cash, laundry, etc).
Groups and online classes
Putting our groups and classes online – we were doing this very early on and uptake has been amazing, although we are acutely aware that more than half our membership does not have online access (so regular calls are essential).
Psychotherapy & bereavement
An expanded low-cost online psychotherapy service.
We’re a small charity and your donation is very important to us, especially at the current time. We have had nothing like our normal income and are struggling to make ends meet. Your help means that we can continue to support many hundreds of isolated older people. Thank you!
