Your support during the Covid-19 crisis has been incredible.
At a time when we’ve been losing hundreds of thousands of pounds of income, we’ve seen demand for our services double. Without your help during lockdown, some of these services would have been forced to close.
But your amazing fundraising, donations and volunteering support has made sure we’re there for the people who need us most right now, and in the future.
During the Covid-19 crisis you have:
Provided life-line support for 4,878 people affected by chest, heart and stroke conditions – including Covid-19 – through our Hospital to Home services
Launched a new national service with our NHS heroes – supporting people with severe lung conditions including Covid-19 get home from hospital
Recruited 6,352 volunteers delivering 35,260 acts of kindness in communities across Scotland
Made over 4,011 phone calls to people who are lonely or isolated
Helped our kindness volunteers do 1,100 dog walks and 2003 shopping deliveries for vulnerable people
Shared life-saving messages and Covid-19 advice 22,327 times online
One of those 3,000 people that you helped get from hospital to home was Catriona, a mum of two who had a heart attack in April this year, just as the pandemic was taking hold in Scotland. When she left hospital, she felt anxious and suffered from panic attacks. The usual face to face support wasn’t available and she felt overwhelmed and isolated. Read her story to find out how your support helped her recover once she returned home from hospital.
One of the 1,500 phone calls that helped to spread kindness across Scotland was to Patricia. Patricia suffered a stroke just as lockdown was beginning, on the same day as she was moving into a new house. She felt terrified and alone. But then she was matched with Kindness Volunteer Sam, who was a lifeline for Patricia. Read their story to discover how your support has helped Patricia get through her most difficult days.
You’re making a real difference to the lives of people across Scotland right now.
Please continue to do what you’re doing and be a hero for the people who really need you. For more ways to get involved:
