Time Out, an organisation in Warwickshire, provide support to vulnerable people ensuring they can continue to be connected with their communities.
They received £1,500 from the Coronavirus Resilience Fund which has enabled them to adapt their services. They’re now helping vulnerable people access medical provisions, food and important resources during these difficult times.
One resident to benefit is Mrs Lee:
“I started using them for their Sitting Service earlier this year. When we knew the lockdown was coming I spoke to Tracey and said I wasn’t sure what I was going to do about the shopping and she said: ‘don’t worry about it, we will help you.’
“They go twice a week for me. They’ve been fantastic, they’ve popped down to the surgery for me they’ve just been really helpful.
“I really have come to rely on them, nothing is too much trouble. I’d encourage anyone in a similar position to contact Time Out, I’d recommend them 100%.
“They’ve been fantastic; I honestly don’t know what I would do without them.”
Tracey Watson, from Time Out, said:
“We’ve been lucky enough to have received funds before from the Heart of England Community Foundation and we feel privileged to be a part of their cause to help communities thrive.
“Now more than ever that support is needed in a different way to ensure the safety and wellbeing of vulnerable adults and older people is maintained.”
