The pandemic has affected charities in many ways. We have had to adapt our practices, ensuring that safety of clients, staff and volunteers remains our highest priority. Although we’re not yet able to offer a full range of therapy services, the programme of “At Home” activities is proving a great success in supporting many of our clients in residential care. We continue to raise funds for our work, with regular support from donors and grant making bodies. HGP’s trustees are confident the charity remains well placed to meet new challenges in the future.
