Bluebird Care Mendip have set up a community grant, which can be awarded to local organisations within Mendip, who are supporting older people or working towards fighting loneliness in rural and urban environments.
 
Bluebird Care Mendip opened its office less than two years ago, and ever since has been working hard to support other organisations in the community.
 
Director of Bluebird Care Mendip, Masen Naidoo, commented;
 
As well as providing care and companionship services to people living in their own homes, Bluebird Care is passionate about supporting community projects and initiatives.
 
So many neighbourhoods thrive because of volunteers who work tirelessly to run community groups, host events and provide services that benefit others. Much of this work involves supporting older people who, without regular coffee mornings, day-trips or lunch clubs, would be left isolated at home.”
The community grant is a sum of £250 which will be awarded every quarter starting in June 2016, to organisations within the community that are working with older people or are addressing the challenges of loneliness within the Mendip area.
 
The group or organisation that can best demonstrate a need for additional support will be allocated the funds. There is no restriction on how the funds can be spent and no limit to the number of applications a single organisation can make. Application forms are available by sending an e-mail to mendip@bluebirdcare.co.uk with the subject ‘Community Grant’.
