What will the grant fund?
Food and Well-Being packs
The funding will be used to provide and deliver food and Well-Being packs and IT equipment to carers that are isolated, particularly in rural areas.
There is the facility for NEWCIS to purchase tablets that carers can use to assist with keeping in touch with organisations such as ourselves as well as using the device during the pandemic to keep in touch with family, friends or do essential shopping or training that will be hosted virtually by NEWCIS in the near future.
The grant has also allowed for additional counselling until the end of June. The counselling is for carers who are struggling with the emotional impact of the coronavirus. The sessions are time and session limited and will be made via telephone or Skype.
