The coronavirus pandemic forced CACT to change and adapt its programmes overnight. Programme staff remained touch with participants and their families about remote delivery and alternative ways to engage with them. CACT continued to be here for those who need us most in our community:
Shopping and deliveries for people in Royal Greenwich
Friendship line – regular phone calls for a chat with people who are self isolating
Mentoring online – running our usual mentoring programmes online and over the phone
Daily online football challenges – encouraging children and young people to keep active
Short Breaks – continuing to provide support and respite to young people with disabilities and their families
How you can help
There are lots of ways you can support people in Greenwich at the moment.
Sign up to volunteer
We’re working with the Royal Borough of Greenwich on the Community Hub – sign up here to volunteer (volunteer recruitment paused as of June 2021).
Donate to support CACT’s work
Help those who need support most at the moment and in the future, whether it’s shopping for food and other essentials or a friendly chat on the phone. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Donations received at the moment will be spent on CACT's support for the community during the coronavirus crisis. If we raise more than we need, funds will be spent on supporting the community get back to normal and recover from the crisis.
Join our fundraising events
All the funds raised will support CACT’s work in the community during the current crisis and into the future.
