It’s lovely to read about Wai Yin and the support from Independent Age recently published. You can find it here:
This is an example of partnership work and what can be achieved with support from our sponsors, and I’m very grateful to Independent Age for giving us this opportunity! Thank you again on behalf of all of our service users.
“We are so thankful for the Independent Age grant. When we saw reduced funding we knew it would greatly affect people in our area. The cultural taboo of refusing to admit when bills cannot be paid or food bought makes it harder to provide the support, and we must help those who need us to trust us.
“Having more support staff changes the way we work for the better, and my future hopes for the charity now include more diverse resources and a belief that our clients won’t be afraid to share their issues or be reluctant to ask us for help.”
