Together we will get through this

Demand for our vital services is increasing rapidly. Please help us be there for older people who desperately need us during this crisis.

Covid-19 Update

26th March 2020

The outbreak of the coronavirus has presented challenges to everyone, with the whole country needing to adapt and respond quickly as circumstances change. During this period we will continue to do our very best to support older people in Cheshire and respond to the challenges that the situation presents.

As well as an online help phone number.  01606 881 660, we are contacting people to find out what they need and how we can best support them over the next few months.  We are redeploying staff and volunteers and using all available resources to provide support in the most effective way.

This includes:

  • Launching a new Information and Advice central phone number which will be one single point of access. 
  • Creating 'Community Coronavirus Response Teams' to support practical requests for help.
  • Continuing to offer excellent information and advice.
  • Continuing casework where possible.
  • Conducting safe and well checks with all the individuals we are currently working with.
  • Expanding our telephone befriending service
  • Supporting volunteers and responding to offers from people to volunteer.
  • Communicating information from trusted sources
  • Co-ordinating between partner organisations.

If you or a family member needs help, please call us on 01606 881660

We urgently need donations of bread, long-life milk and other staple items for our clients. Donations can be dropped off at our head office - 314 Chester Road, Hartford, Cheshire CW8 2AB
