- Can you help us Rise to the Challenge?
- Fundraising resources
The SVP has always been there for people who are older, vulnerable or on the margins of society. When Covid-19 hit and the country went into lockdown, SVP volunteers and support centres sprang into action with deliveries of hot meals, emergency food parcels and essentials.
While we had to stop our befriending visits, our volunteers have offered one-to-one support over the phone to people who may be feeling more lonely or isolated than ever before.
Lockdown has eased, but there's still a long road ahead for people who have been hit hardest by the pandemic. The UK is now in its deepest recession on record and millions of people have been left fearing for their jobs and futures. Poverty, hunger and homelessness are on the rise. Can you help us Rise to the Challenge?
Together, we can make a difference to the lives of people in need at a time they need it most.
The SVP has supported vulnerable people like Sara and their families with emergency food parcels and other essential supplies through our ‘Knock and Drop’ service.
"What you are doing is great. I have possibly lost my job and my partner has been furloughed due to the pandemic. A gesture like this means so much to families like ours" - Sara
