During these difficult times, our services at Age Concern Colchester & North East Essex are needed even more than ever supporting later years, some of which represent the most vulnerable in the community and every single one of them is precious to us.
-For instance, our ever busy advice service has raised as much as £1.3m in benefit entitlements for those most in need over the last year.
-Over 100 vulnerable adults are being matched with a pal through the befriending service, now operating over the telephone.
-We are also looking to extend additional support and introduce new programmes in relation to the Corona Virus outbreak over the coming months which we will let you know about in due course.
Due to centre closures etc, unfortunately we are unable to run our face to face services in the way we would wish, which also has a significant impact on our income generation, and therefore our ability to continue delivering key services.
Please help us to carry on serving those most in need through these challenging times by donating today here on face book or on our web page where there are other ways you can contribute: https://buff.ly/2DmgMRz
