This year we’re working hard to put all the measures, planning and procedures in place so that what we provide over the Winter is as safe as possible for the people we care for, our volunteers and supporters. We’ve worked hard to build community partnerships with Bristolian businesses, action groups and charities to source absolutely everything we need for the project. Prioritising the welfare of our clients and guests by limiting the possible spread of the virus.
Utilising these strong community links also enables us to be incredibly financially savvy, ensuring the project is run with your valued support in mind. The responsibility for protecting our vulnerable clients is our highest priority, which is why it is imperative we continue being present for them throughout winter.
After consideration we therefore cannot accept individual donations of food, clothing, bedding or toiletries this year. It is vital we minimise contact opportunities and limit visits to our offices, storage space and interactions with our essential staff. Thank you for your continued support and understanding with this.
We’re therefore asking that if you’d like to support Caring at Christmas this year, you consider donating financially .
We need your support! It costs us £60,000 each year to deliver Caring at Christmas. We work hard to improve and develop the project to provide the best possible service to our guests, whilst also keeping our costs down, and we think that’s pretty
amazing value for what we deliver.
We don’t receive any statutory funding for this work, so we are reliant on donations from the incredibly generous community in Bristol and beyond.
A donation of £21 pays for someone to access Caring at Christmas, where they will have access to:
- regular hot meals
- shower and fresh clothes
- COVID19 check ups, information and medical support
- a warm welcome and good company
- wellbeing, health, entertainment and social(ly-distanced) activities
- emotional, mental health and housing support
