Action for Elders

Action for Elders was formed to provide solutions to the major health challenges of an ageing society. In particular mobility and social isolation (loneliness), our Balanced Lives programme which tackles mobility, social exclusion and health prevention seeks to address this. To date our solution which allows for older people to live active independent lives for longer in their homes has also dramatically reduced visits to the G.P., lessened hospital admissions and in a number of cases even reduced physical joint and bone pain.

Currently, we are a small charity wishing to grow and run more sustainable programmes. With the outcomes we have already achieved in the lives of older people it is our responsibility to do more.

We need to run more programmes across the UK and keep older people fit, healthy and independent for as long as possible.

We want to effect real sustainable change in the health of older people. We can only do this with your help.

Please add 'life' to later life and support us. If you do all of us could be winners!

These experiences change lives, and we’d love you to join us. By joining the JST Community Lottery you will have the chance to win £25,000 every week. Plus you’ll be helping to fund our life changing voyages.
Support us now. Join the adventure.

NEDCare

NEDCare is an award-winning community initiative that was set-up by local people in 2016, in response to a dire lack of regulated ‘care at home’ services in North East Dartmoor.

The situation was leaving many vulnerable older people struggling behind closed doors, without the essential care and support they needed to maintain their independence and to live safe and well at home in this rural area. Families, friends and those seeking care were often at breaking point when trying to access local services.

As a charity NEDCare’s vision is of ‘care for everyone who needs it, where and when they need it.’
Because the eligibility threshold for support from local authorities has been rising for years, many older people now struggle to pay for the care they need, often having to decide between food, heat or much needed support.

For this reason, we subsidise the cost of care for those least able to pay and most of the proceeds from our lottery will go towards supporting these most vulnerable people.

We also need to double the size of our care team in order to meet local demand – we estimate up to 15 people are waiting for much needed care in our area, at any time. For this reason, a small proportion of proceeds will go in to the ever-challenging task of finding and recruiting outstanding carers to join our team.

NEDCare looked after my mother for 18 months, before she passed away at home, as she wanted. I do not know how I would have managed without NEDCare.

Our mission is;
• To provide reliable, high quality, person-centred care which empowers people to live safely and happily in their own homes.
• To support our well-trained, professional and friendly carers to build excellent relationships with those they support, helping them to remain as independent as possible within their own homes.
• To maintain an open and excellent organisational culture of continuous learning and improvement for all within the service.
NED Care visit me every evening to prepare my supper and complete other household jobs that I can’t do myself. The Carers provide company and reassurance, and they help me to feel safe in my own home. They look after me and my dog (Sam) very well.

For further information please visit https://www.nedcare.org/

Good luck! And thank you for your support.

Royal Voluntary Service

We are helping people where the need is greatest all over Britain. In our busy, pressurised NHS hospitals our volunteers are at work, helping create more time to care, and in the community they are giving life-changing support to vulnerable people – people like Paula, who found herself gripped by depression and loneliness after her husband died.

With the help of our kind supporters, we were able to send Stewart, one of our caring volunteers, to help Paula. Stewart took Paula out to one of our Royal Voluntary Service lunch clubs twice a week, where she could meet new people.

“I’ve known Stewart since last year and he has been such a huge help to me, I don’t know what I would do without him.”
We want to create happier, healthier communities for more people like Paula – and by signing up to take part in our lottery, you’ll be helping to do just that.
