Help us Save Christmas for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.
2020 has been a very difficult year for many vulnerable people. Whilst thousands have lost their lives, others have had to shield or isolate alone or with loved ones.
Vulnerable people are facing loneliness and isolation as many services have closed or have become restricted. Many unpaid carers are at breaking point, having been unable to access the care and support services they need. Their physical and mental wellbeing are at risk and their need for support is vital, many have not had a break since March.
People with mental health conditions have missed the companionship and stimulation of Day Services, which have closed or reduced their hours. People living with dementia have missed socialising at Dementia Cafes and enjoying vital activities.
Making Space has been battling to keep people safe whilst continuing to support vulnerable people. We have worked hard to keep people safe in our residential services, adapted our community services, switched to phone support and online activities and distributed tablet computers and activity packs. Whilst, our support workers have met people in parks and on their doorsteps, following all government regulations.
Christmas will be very different this year and Making Space wants to help save Christmas. Christmas 2020 will be a time of reflection, a time of caring and a time of giving. We are offering the chance to send a Christmas card to a vulnerable person, which we will distribute to one of our services.
Please donate and we will put all the money raised into our activities, carer breaks and projects.
