Urgent appeal

Why we need your help

Carer and residentsThe people we care for are amongst those most vulnerable at this time. We are working tirelessly to care for their health and well-being throughout this crisis.

We aren't able to safely share the use of items such as hoists between our residents.

This will be the same with any pieces of nursing, health and therapy equipment which will be needed over the coming months. 

To continue to provide the highest quality of care and highest quality of life to our residents at this time, we are also doing all that we can to ensure our key workers are able to continue to do their jobs in a safe environment. 

We know COVID-19 has put a huge strain on many families. But if you would like to donate to help with our work at this vital time, we would be exceptionally grateful.

Messages of love 

In our care homes, residents like Margaret have been making messages for their family members. Our team have been amazing at finding new ways to keep everyone’s spirits up in what are incredibly challenging and uncertain times. 

We are doing all we can to keep our staffing levels high so we can provide not only care but tailored activities for the residents including; reading newspapers to residents in their room, taking people for walks around our grounds on a one-to-one basis and doing quizzes. Our priority is to keep everything as normal as possible for them.

Our school has now closed for day pupils, but those who we care for 52-weeks of the year in our on-campus homes remain with us, are supported by our education and care team.
