What They Do?
Jewish Care provides specialist services for older people, people with mental health needs, individuals with physical and sensory disabilities, Holocaust survivors, people who are living with dementia and those who are caring for others. They are an umbrella organisation of huge support and care to those in our community that need it. With over 70 services, they offer care homes, social workers, community centres and outreach into the community to support people living independently. They touch the lives of 10,000 people every week.
Their vision is of Jewish communities where everyone can participate. Communities that are characterised by kindness, compassion and giving, where people are fully included, where they are not lonely or isolated and where they can receive excellent care, which celebrates their Jewishness and supports them to express themselves and their culture. Jewish Care’s purpose is to deliver care and community support services either directly or in partnership with other organisations.
How do we help?
The Trust are currently helping to fund the role of a new Community Social Worker/Counsellor at Jewish Care’s Sandringham campus, and will continue to do so over a 3 year period. The Trust have also provided ad hoc support on an annual basis in the past.
