Emergency Coronavirus Appeal

Why we need your help

During this difficult time, we have adapted the way we work, so we can continue to be there for vulnerable older people in Horsham District.

With older people now in isolation for an unknown length of time due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we need to ensure we can continue to offer services that support them with basic needs, such as food and medication, as well as offering help to maintain physical and mental health and well-being.  We need to raise vital funds to enable us to do this.

We are supporting local older people by offering: 

  • Information and Advice: Including information on social care, housing, financial advice and welfare benefits
  • Telephone befriending: A friendly chat for those who are feeling lonely or isolated
  • Doorstep Deliveries: We can deliver groceries (subject to availability) and essential medication to the doorstep, as well as knitting kits, CDs/DVDs, books and jigsaws to help keep older people mentally active
  • Welfare and Safety Support: Helping the most vulnerable with tasks such as cleaning, shopping and laundry, as well as offering respite for carers
  • Wellbeing advice: We can share information on healthy living, nutrition, hydration and exercises that can take place in the home or garden to keep people fit and well during these unprecedented times.

As a charity we are facing many challenges due to the pandemic, including loss of income (cancellation of fundraising events etc).  Anything you can donate today to help us be there to support older people at this critical time would be so gratefully appreiciated.  Thank you.
