Bags of Support 2020

On 1st October 2020 we are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the International Day of Older Persons by launching our Bags of Support. This year has been a difficult and challenging time for us all and in particular for older people. Our Bags of Support have been designed to help provide comfort and reassurance to those who may be vulnerable or needing a little bit of extra support during the pandemic. We are still here for you whatever you are facing. For support, contact us on: 01903 731 800
