CACT's response to coronavirus and how you can help

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.
