We need to raise extra funds to help our older isolated community members who are struggling throughout this difficult time.

by Otley Action for Older People in Otley, England, United Kingdom

At Otley Action for Older People we strive to support the most isolated older people in our community. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated social isolation for our most vulnerable elderly. As a small team of 3 staff we have been tasked with ensuring that the 1200 people registered with our charity in our community have access to support. This has meant that we have refocused on tasks such as shopping, medication collections, hot food provision and telephone support and advice. We now need to go further as many of our service users are feeling very low and depressed as a result of ten weeks of self isolation. We would now like to develop new services that can adhere to social distance regulations whilst getting people out of the house for short periods. Funds raised will help us to pay for PPE equipment, transport sanitisation and related costs and costs towards fuel and activities.
