Whiteley Homes Trust Covid-19 NEVER ALONE APPEAL
WHITELEY HOMES TRUST COVID-19 NEVER ALONE APPEAL
For over a hundred years our charity The Whiteley Homes Trust (WHT) at Whiteley Village has been supporting and caring for some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable older people across Surrey.
Like our NHS partners and all other housing and social care providers, we are currently facing massive financial and practical challenges on a scale none of us have ever experienced before due to the COVID 19 outbreak.
This global health emergency has created a perfect storm for our aged community at Whiteley Village. Key income from our fund-raising events and venues has ceased, and our costs have surged.
WHT needs urgent financial aid for the extra PPE protection, Care, and Support of its isolated and vulnerable aged residents due to the COVID 19 crisis:
£10 – Will provide one day's full PPE to enable a member of staff to provide the continued care for one of our residents
£20 – Will ensure that our residents receive regular phone calls and contact with our support workers whilst dealing with loneliness and self-isolation.
£50 – Will enable us to provide additional care and support services for our aged residents who are now isolated and vulnerable
£100 – Will contribute towards enabling the WHT to continue to fulfill the wishes of its founder William Whiteley of providing homes and care to the aged poor for another 100 years.
Most of our c.450 residents have extremely limited resources, and many have no family close by - or at all and so for some, we are all they have.
On their behalf, I am asking for your support at this desperate time.
So please give whatever you can – it will not only help us continue supporting and protecting our residents and our staff through this crisis but will also help protect the future of our Trust and the precious legacy of our Founder William Whiteley, who shared our belief that everyone, irrespective of means, deserves a safe and comfortable home.
“Helping at Whiteley began as a small way of thanking all of the wonderful people who are taking care of my mum who sadly lives too far away for me to currently visit. Since getting involved I have been overwhelmed by what an incredible and caring community this is. Everyone is working tirelessly to make life as safe and as normal as possible for all the people living at Whiteley and it is a huge privilege to be a small part of this process.” - Davina, Village Store Volunteer.
