Bradford PHAB Covid 19 Response
Project Category: Registered charity
Here at Bradford PHAB Club we are having to deliver our services differently and now using Safe Contact methods via Telephone, Social Media Apps and other online forums to deliver Exercise and other fun elements of engagement. However we are only a small charity with little reserves and are desperate for funding to be able to continue these activities and to also look at distributing Food to our most vulnerable members and their families.
We are in desperate need to provide Food and specialist IT Equipment for our members to be able to deliver our services whilst there is no face to face contact. Many of the families we support are from a poor background and unable to afford the equipment needed for us to provide the safe contact activities we now need to do online. We want to combat Isolation and let our members know we are here for them, someone to talk to, someone they can interact with online, do activities online and help to support their mental health at this very difficult time.
We rely on goodwill and donations to survive and now more than ever it is needed desperately to be able to continue to deliver a different and more personal service to the families we support. The benefits will be immense, improving wellbeing, providing support, knowing someone is there for them, improving mental health, providing friendship and assistance and trying to allay fears of the unknown. Our activities will help keep our members Healthy and Fit leading to increased positivity and general wellbeing.
We hope to get our members to set up a video diary so we can evaluate the difference our support has made once we all return to some form of normality. Our main aim of focus is to support our already vulnerable members to help them put food on the table, stop isolation and provide the support and assistance needed at a very difficult and uncertain time for us all. We may not have lots of money but what we do have is that community spirit needed right now to try and lift our members spirits and keep them mentally and physically well as best we can. We are adopting a targeted approach and need the money and equipment to be able to deliver this quickly
