Thera Connex was launched in 2020 to keep the people we support connected during COVID-19.
In 2020 we launched Thera Connex to help keep the people we support connected during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Keeping people safe means that the people we support were not able to visit family or spend time doing their normal activities. Our key workers did an amazing job of supporting our #StayHomeHeroes to continue their day to day lives as normally as possible.
We launched our Thera Connex fundraising appeal in July 2020 to help the people we support to stay connected by:
- Accessing arts and crafts materials
- Accessing tools and technology to keep in touch with family
- Providing accessible information and practical guidance on how to use technology
We raised £600 and were able to supply over 250 craft boxes, to help the people we support to express and manage their feelings. Thank you to everyone who donated. People supported, such as Julie hugely benefitted from access to a creative outlet!
