KAG is a small charity that has been supporting vulnerable people in Richmond and other areas for almost 30 years.
Now we are seeking your help so we can extend our “Helping Hand” service, for elderly people living on their own in London Borough of Richmond.
Evidence shows that half of the people over 75 in Richmond live on their own and half do not have contact with other people that they needed.
This can have a profoundly negative effect on general and mental health .
We need your help so we can support more people, at no cost to themselves.
Our volunteers will support them in many ways, such as : meeting regularly , going shopping, helping with bills, going to hospital and doctors appointments and just spending time, listening and talking with them.
All of the money that you send to us will be used for recruiting , training and developing the volunteers, supporting the partnerships and monitoring the service.
For every £25 a volunteer can support a person for a month.
For every £300, a volunteer will be able to support a person for a whole year.
