COVID-19 Update WESC Foundation

4 November 2020

Our work will continue through “lockdown 2”

New national restrictions come into force across England on Thursday 5th November 2020. Whilst most of the country will be staying at home, we will continue to support the inspirational children and young adults – and their families – who depend on our charity for education, care and support.

Young people with complex needs and visual impairment often face barriers to learning, living and taking an active, independent place in society. We will continue to provide the specialist expertise, equipment and adapted facilities to inspire, challenge and empower them to live their best lives.

All our charity’s services for children and young adults with visual impairment and complex needs will continue to operate. This includes the school, college, adult day services, St David’s House and supported living accommodation.

Only essential visitors to the site are permitted.

Charity shops and online shopping

Our charity shops will be closed from 5th November 2020 due to the national COVID-19 restrictions for non-essential retail.

We are unable to accept donations at this time.

You can still shop online using our eBay store.

How you can help

People who are blind or partially sighted need additional help during the time of COVID-19.

Children with additional, complex needs often need extra, specialist support throughout the day. New national restrictions or lockdowns do not change this, and our team of carers, teachers, nurses, therapists and other professionals will continue to work throughout November.

Your donation could give the gift of a brighter future to these inspirational children and young adults – and their families – and allow us to continue to meet their needs throughout lockdown.

Please consider making a gift to WESC Foundation.
