Donate today and help the community of Parson Cross
Parson Cross Forum is one of the leading charities in the North of Sheffield, we offer support to the whole community, but specialise in working with older people and families living with Dementia. As a small independent charity, we work hard to raise our own funds via room hire and the delivery of activities and services, as well as income from grants and donations.
Due to Covid-19, we have now lost all of the income we usually generate ourselves. As a result we are now asking for donations at this very difficult time.
You can help to support our appeal to raise £1,000, so we can continue to offer our services to our community and especially those who are isolated or living with Dementia.
As well as dealing with everyday work, we are currently supporting more than 100 older people, trying to make sure they stay connected to their community whilst living in isolation, we are doing this via methods such as 3 weekly online Memory Café meetings on Zoom, regularly doorstep drop off activity and support packs to check in on people face to face (from a safe distance), making over 100 phone calls per week to find out how people are coping, if they need any support and how their mental health is. We are also dealing with food and food-bank requests and people worried about their neighbours. We are currently working 5 days per week and our phone lines are open from 9am until 8pm for our community.
Thanks to our supporters we have been able to deliver over 100 parcels to our older residents including parcels to our local nursing homes who usually access our services up to 3 time per week. As a small charity, every single penny donated will make a real and significant difference to the support we can offer our community and help to look after the most vulnerable people we support..
Over the next few weeks this pandemic will slowly come to an end for some of us, but many of our older and vulnerable members will still need to stay in isolation, so we need to continue to be there for them.
Parson Cross Forum is supporting older people the best way we can and as a small independent charity, solely responsible for raising our own funds, we are asking you for your continued support and donations during these difficult times. This will allow us to be there to continue to provide a lifeline for our most vulnerable members and those living with Dementia.
