Brendoncare Preventing Loneliness
Brendoncare Club Hampshire helps to prevent loneliness by providing companionship and shared activities for older people, but the heart-breaking decision to suspend clubs during the Covid-19 pandemic has left many members alone and frightened.
A grant of £5,000 has enabled Brendoncare to contact members by phone and letter, to check if they need essential supplies and to offer help with getting online to engage in club video activities, providing tablets where needed.
