Like for most charities, Covid-19 has put a huge pressure on our finances. With more people than ever turning to us for support, we increasingly rely on fundraising to pay for costs including:

  • Tools and equipment for our Help at Home service
  • Our van running costs
  • Postage for the regular mailouts we do to keep our clients updated about our services
  • Volunteers’ expenses and training
  • Core funds to keep our services running
