How Covid-19 has changed the JHF

COVID-19 has presented our small charity with an incredible challenge. The beginning of the outbreak forced the creation of bespoke virtual mentoring.

Whilst making our working situation harder, it also presented us with a greater challenge due to the impact it had on the very people we are here to support. Despite these challenges and throughout lockdown, the JHF never ceased its 250+ weekly hours of support. We continue to meet the needs of our community, thanks in large part to the flexibility and tenacity of our service users, their families, and our dedicated and growing team of mentors and tutors.

Despite growing demand, we were here for our local community when they needed us most, something we’re very proud of.

Our community has been a source of great strength for us, as we hope we have been for them. Stories of how we have supported them has given us the courage and determination to keep going, work harder and maximise our impact, whatever the climate.
