On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Project Senior Leadership Team, I am delighted to announce that the CARE Project has received a very kind and generous grant of £43,000 from the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) and the Welsh Government.
Over the last week, the CARE Project has made local and national news, as over 100 volunteers galvanise themselves to join the response effort in tackling the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus Outbreak.
It is now Day 5 of the CARE Project – the initiative set up by the Bedwas, Machen, Michaelston-y-Fedw & Rudry Parish Trust (i.e the Local Church) to help those in the greatest need during the Coronavirus Outbreak. The CARE Project has been providing services to anyone in our community who is self-isolating, alone, elderly/frail,.
Today, the British Government have put measures in place which will see a more robust approach to self-isolation taking place. You can read the full scope of measures here.
After a strange week and a lot of work behind the scenes, we have some important announcements to make about how your local church will be helping our communities here during the Coronavirus Outbreak.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we have important announcements to make regarding our provision of events and services, the ongoing care of our congregations and what we are planning to do to help our communities.
