“Thank you so much to everyone at HIWCF and the NHS Covid-19 fund for their recent donation of £6,755 towards our Covid-19 Health & Wellbeing Programme, to keep all of our disabled residents and clients happy, healthy, safe and mentally and physically well at this challenging time."
Wellbeing in Care Homes
Dan lives in a care home at Enham Trust and had begun searching for employment before Covid-19 put a stop to everything. Having to put his plans with family and friends and dreams of getting a job on hold has been incredibly disappointing for him.
But determined to keep his spirits high, Dan is particularly proud to have helped to develop a new sensory garden for the benefit of all the other residents, where he has been cutting willow and learning to weave the fence panels needed for the garden.
This is possible thanks to the Enham Trust wellbeing project ensuring the mental and physical wellbeing of hundreds of disabled people, which has been supported by a grant from the NHS Covid-19 Fund and HIWCF donors.
