We are delighted to have received grant funding through the Essex Community Foundation to support the Team FaNs work with Care Homes during the Covid-19 Crisis
We are very grateful to have been awarded a Grant from the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal Programme, which is managed by the Essex Community Foundation (ECF).
This recognises the amazing additional work of our Team FaNs (and, of course, our wider FaNs Network of willing volunteers) who have been providing an adapted response service to support Essex Care Home residents and staff, helping them to keep safe during the Covid-19 crisis.
We know that this important support work is outside our usual FaNs enabling role, but we believe it has been 'the right thing to do' and it has been greatly appreciated by many of our usual FaNs participating Care Homes. We have also supported a number of other Care Homes and we'd love to invite them to stay involved with FaNs after this crisis has passed.
Thank you for all your kind messages via Facebook and please stay in touch with us @fansnetworkessex and send us your photos of how you are coping in the lockdown.
