The Doncaster carers reach out service support people in their caring role and help them to stay connected in the Doncaster community.

The South Yorkshire Community Foundation provided a grant of £9,500 that will support carers during these uncertain times by providing treat hampers and taxi vouchers for carers who are caring for someone with a disability.

It is often the case that people being cared for have more than one illness or disability. Leaving their homes is challenging enough but the global pandemic has made this more challenging and many people are being more cautious when planning outings. The taxi voucher will help carers and the people they care for to leave the house safely.

Additionally, the team received another grant to support our BAME carer support group and dementia cafe. The grant will pay for hampers, crafts/activities and entertainment, dementia friendly items and dementia directories to help people understand the services and help available to them in their local area.

Service Manager, Cath Magee, was ‘absolutely delighted to receive these grants. They will make a big difference for the most vulnerable carers in Doncaster’.

Our teams have continue to find new ways to offer services to the people we support, even as regulations change on a weekly basis.

Congratulations to our team in Doncaster and thanks again to the South Yorkshire Community Foundation for their support.
