We are delighted to have been able to provide vital support to so many charities during the pandemic. Helping Angels Charitable Association are a friendly, high quality, personal assistant service who work with local people with physical, cognitive or age-related conditions who need support with daily tasks, domestic routines, and support them with building social relationships and participating fully within the community.
Like many charities Helping Angels were really struggling financially during lockdown. They almost gave up and considered closing the charity altogether, but they were doing so much to support local people, this would have been devastating.
Luckily the charity came to Support Staffordshire for assistance and we helped them to apply for some funding. Not only were they successful, they received a large sum from The National Lottery which enabled them to employ 3 full time staff!.
Those people in our community would have been left without their vital personal assistant support, had Helping Angels not come to us for help.
Natasha Gratton, CEO of Helping Angels said “We would like to say a huge thank you to Support Staffordshire! When the pandemic hit last year we didn’t know where to look for support. We knew we needed to adapt for our members and support them but didn’t know where or when that funding would come in. We worked closely with Support Staffs at this time to look at local organisational funders and they supported me to complete a number of applications. Thanks to Support Staffordshire we managed to support our members when they needed us most”.
We need to be able to continue to provide our vital support to charities like Helping Angels so that they can continue to provide their valuable services to our community.
