The Hadleigh Cares Community Group – Case Study

The Hadleigh Cares Community project is the town’s new coronavirus support group.  A team of 170 dedicated volunteers have been working so hard during this crisis to help those who are vulnerable and self-isolating. All of them have been carrying out services such as shopping, delivering prescriptions, both precooked and hot food (five times a week), vegetable boxes, dog walking, post office visits, cake making for our fantastic key workers and so much more…

So far, they have already carried out over 2000 collection and deliveries, delivered over 1300 meals and 500 prescriptions. The funding received has helped to assist vulnerable residents in the area that are not able to access funds or who are struggling; in some cases those identified are extremely vulnerable.

The support we have received from the team at Suffolk Community Foundation has been vital for us.  This incredible funding allows us to concentrate on providing an extremely high level of care without financial restrictions, especially as none of us know how long we will be living like this. We are so grateful.
