National Emergencies Trust (NET) funding awarded to Deafblind UK

Lyn talking to a Deafblind UK member

Coronavirus has challenged the whole nation, causing fear, grief, panic and disruption to the way each one of us goes about our daily lives. The National Emergencies Trust (NET) has partnered with HIWCF to award Deafblind UK a grant to help those most affected by the crisis.

The grant will help us to continue to provide practical and emotional support to people with dual sensory loss during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Clare Watson, Head of National Serices said “Thank you very much to NET and HIWCF for providing this funding, which is essential to ensure that we are able to carry out our services/project and make a real difference to people’s lives.

Jonathan Cheshire OBE, HIWCF Chairman commented “We are delighted to be able to support Deafblind UK in their work to help those in need in the local community. Local charities, community groups and voluntary organisations are providing a lifeline to those less fortunate, and it is heartening to see that these organisations can react so quickly and be so resourceful in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. The vital services that these organisations provide are more crucial now than ever before but are under threat more than at any other time. HIWCF is continuing to raise funding for charities across our region, for which donations can be made to the ‘We’re All Together’ Fund: virginmoneygiving.com/fund/AllTogether ”.
