Help Us Help
Why we need your help
Older people's charity, Age Connects Cardiff and the Vale, continues it's long-standing committment to support vulnerable and isolated older people living in our communities amidst the coronavirus outbreak.
We are following official guidelines and advice and consequently, all of our public offices which serve older people have been closed and staff are advised to work from home where possible to reduce risks to them and those around them.
Our limited resources are now focused on maintaining telephone contact with the hundreds of older people on our charity database identified as being most in need. We estimate this number to be 948 older people living with Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
Our staff and volunteers will be working hard to make calls to see if assistance is needed with shopping etc. and to offer reassurance, social contact and support.
It is a worrying and anxious time for all and thecommunity spirit being shown is heart-warming to see.
If you or an organisation you work for want to show support for our ongoing charity work at this time, then please make a donation and help us reach out to not only the 948 vulnerable older people who we are aware of, but also the many more who are now contacting us every day asking for support.
With your donations, we can ensure that older people living in our local communities do not feel alone and stay safe and well during this unsettling time.
