Covid 19 Funding

The world is going through an incredibly difficult time, and for Amicus we are facing the challenge of ensuring we continue to deliver services to our clients who need our support now more than ever. In addition to the creation of a strategic plan that focuses on safe support and key work, where possible we have implemented a telephone support system, social distancing guidance and where this is not possible we have ensured Personal Protection Equipment is available for staff so they can meet the need of the service user.

We would like to say thank you to Crisis, Leicester and Rutland Community Trust, Tesco and the Bedford and Luton Community Fund who have reacted incredibly swiftly during the pandemic to give charities like Amicus Trust an opportunity to access essential funding during this difficult time. With the funding we have been able to purchase personal protection equipment and support extra phone costs to ensure that staff and service users are able to make regular contact with each other, delivering key work and also mental health support where needed.

Take care and stay safe everyone.
