Mission Statement

To enrich the quality of life of those in need within our community by providing practical and emotional support.

Description

Who do we help? In 2011 - 12 we helped 436 individuals or families. These are people of all ages, (but mostly aged between 66 and 90) who either:

  • Miss out on statutory help; or

  • For whom statutory help is not enough to give them a reasonable quality of life.

    Our Volunteers: We currently have over 200 volunteers, mostly recruited from local churches. They all go through an induction process with us and are regularly invited to trainings & social gatherings.

    What do we do?

  • Befriend / Visit

  • Provide transport

  • Shop

  • Gardening

  • Decorate / other DIY

  • Support parents of babies and young children

    Clients can seek help personally, or are referred through a number of different routes, including social workers, caring organisations, and health professionals. A high percentage of clients ask for our help due to physical difficulty and the tasks requested most are transport and visiting clients at home.

    You can help by:

  • Becoming a Volunteer and helping to enrich someone’s life

  • Making a donation which can be Gift Aided either through the bank or via our Website (VirginMoneyGiving)
