Like the rest of the country the trust has had to make several changes to its services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Newlands Bishop Farm, Community Gardening Services and Dementia Blanning Day Centre have all had to temporarily close their doors to clients during this time. The staff at all our centres and community support team have continued their high levels of care by going out into the community to take our services users essential supplies, pick up prescriptions, do any shopping required and to check in to offer them any support they might require.
We have been able to offer so many essential supplies to our service users thanks to the amazing donations from local supermarkets, small businesses and donations. You can see from the photos below how fantastic the donations have been. These donations have also enabled Berrys Cafe (based at the farm) to produce hundreds of meals for NHS staff at Heartlands and Queen Elizabeth hospitals.
We would like to thank all of the staff working for the Family Care Trust during this time, who as always are going above and beyond for our service users. We would also like to thank Morrisons, Sainsburys, Molls Bacon and Tescos for their fantastic donations which continue to arrive at the farm. If you are able to help us continue providing essentials to our service users and food to the NHS staff at Heartlands and QE please get in touch with us on 0121 770 1578. We hope your all staying safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
