During this time Age Concern Colchester continues to support people in the local community by keeping people connected through regular phone calls and its advice service.
Much like everyone else the team have pulled together to stay in touch as many people as possible that use the befriending services or the Colchester activity centre – known as the Veranda.
We are also doing our bit to keep you all occupied thorough our published activities and keep following us on social media and website for new things that are being added all the time.
Our advice team are on hand to help people with advice, and whilst we can’t come out to visit you, we are available on the phone and by email.
If you know someone who might need support at this time, they can still call 01206 368420 leave a message which we can pick up remotely and then we can call you back.
One of the most important things at this time is keeping people connected, so keep following us and pass on our telepone number to anyone you might need it.
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://donate.justgiving.com/donation-amount?uri=aHR0cHM6Ly9kb25hdGUtYXBpLmp1c3RnaXZpbmcuY29tL2FwaS9kb25hdGlvbnMvNDk3ZTY1MmQwMWUwNDhkMDkyOGI1ODE1MDNlY2Q5ZWU=
