Successful funding provides further stability for SHOP for You service

KPAIS are delighted to announce success in acquiring Covid-19 response funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. This funding will enable us to scale up the SHOP for You service throughout the winter months so that we can continue to meet the needs of older and vulnerable local residents, which have increased as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The development of this service will have a significant impact in our region, allowing us to increase staff capacity and strengthen our capability to respond quickly to new referrals. This initial 6 months of funding means we can further support older and vulnerable residents throughout the winter months, at a time when there are added risks to vulnerable people presented by Covid-19 and its prevalence during colder weather.

We are pleased that we are able to expand and grow the SHOP for You service so that older people and their families will benefit. Current SHOP clients will continue to receive every level of our service as it is available and in a Covid-safe manner, and the additional staff capacity enabled by this funding provides further reassurance to clients that their support will not be affected in the event of staff sickness or incapacity due to Covid-19. For new beneficiaries, additional staff capacity will enable us to accept and manage an increase of new referrals, assessments and support.

Chief Officer Pat McCarthy is delighted by the news;

“Our team have worked extremely hard this year to continue offering the highest level of support to our clients during a really difficult time. I am so pleased that we can continue to offer this high standard as well as continue to receive and accept new referrals. As we move into winter and we are seeing an increase in cases in our region, it is my hope that more people can access our service and feel safe in the knowledge that we are here to help and maintain access to essentials throughout this trying time.”

If you or someone you know would benefit from the SHOP for You service, please get in touch with our SHOP Coordinator Val to discuss options and make a referral.
