Support for organisations working with older people - Bring Joy Foundation

If you are a local community group that has had to suspend your meeting but still want to support your seniors, you can apply for support from the Bring Joy Foundation. They can provide your group with online vouchers so you can order online for direct delivery home activity products to help seniors stave off boredom and keep them occupied, mentally busy and active, during this period of lockdown.

In addition there are funds available for those seniors that may face extra challenges through illness or disability. Bring Joy will fund communication tools and assistive technology to keep these vulnerable seniors safe, well and connected.
