Age Concern, Sandwich
Age Concern Sandwich provides preventative and social care to the over 50s from Sandwich, and surrounding villages.
‘Having somewhere to come and meet friends, take part in activities, have a freshly cooked, balanced meal, plus the opportunity to take sandwiches home for an evening meal, receive information and advice if required, this is a life line and means many more people have a quality of life and independence, something we all take for granted when we are younger, said: Tracey Ward, Chief Officer, Age Concern Sandwich.
‘Since the centre was forced to close due to Covid19 we have been continuing to support Sandwich and surrounding villages by increasing our Meals on Wheels deliveries to the elderly and vulnerable who cannot leave their homes and have no other local support.
Tracey added, ‘We are also carrying out shopping and prescription collecting and offering a telephone befriending service to those who are isolated or alone.
‘We have a fantastic team of staff and volunteers who are helping us to carry out these services.’
