Now more than ever, no one should have no one
We are determined to be there for the older people in Northamptonshire who need us.
We are continuing to support our clients during the lockdown which started on Thursday 5th November and will end on Wednesday 2nd December.
We are confident that we can support our clients safely throughout this period, carrying on our much needed work since the Covid-19 crisis began in March. 'Lockdown' has been a major challenge for older people in Northamptonshire and social isolation can be a horrible and detrimental experience for so many. We will do as much as we can to combat that social isolation by keeping our services open and our clients supported. We wish to reassure all our clients and their families that government rules permit our services to continue and we will not be stopping the support we provide. We are taking every precaution to keep people safe.
Our eight shops will be closed over the period. They are classed as non essential retail and, therefore, have been directed to close under the new rules.
This is a difficult time for our charity, as it is for our clients, and we thank everyone who has helped us to provide these vital services.

In common with all charities in the UK our income has been dramatically reduced. We urgently need financial donations at this difficult time to enable us to carry on supporting older people in our community.
