Caring for Older People & their Carers In Garforth & the 12 Surrounding Villages

Welcome

NET A Charity for the over

60’s In Garforth and the

surrounding 12 villages of

East Leeds covering 45 sq.

miles.

Its ethos is summed up by a comment from one of NET’s clients who commented on our facebook page after being escorted through the vaccine process at the Kippax Health Centre ”You do so much for the community and never want praise, you just want to help because you care” This comment sums up NET’s ethos of supporting the over 60s and over the past year supporting the community. NET could not operate without the volunteers who work with us. They are the ones that should be applauded for what NET achieves and the services NET provides.

Not only bingo tea and cakes

NET started to support the younger members of the community many years ago. We have helped them achieve Duke of Edinburgh Awards at all levels. We also help university students with their qualifications. Everyone of them who volunteered have commented on how it improved their life skills. They also say how enjoyable it is to work with older members of the community. Due to us cancelling all events last year it has reduced our ability to help them. However many still want to help such as Harrison Marsland (picture above) now a NET Volunteer assisting with the vaccine program at Gibson Lane Kippax. Harrison aged 15 attends Garforth Academy. After a very successful year achieving his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award working with NET clients prior to the pandemic, he is now working towards his Silver Award. Well done Harrison we are all so proud of you and your achievements. Other students are helping with food parcel deliveries ( usually with their grandparents ) It is nice to know they keep us in check re wearing the correct PPE and social distancing. Thank you all.

Working with Leeds

Community Healthcare.

NHS Trust

NET has worked with NHS Community Healthcare NHS Trust for many years. We were contacted prior to the vaccine roll out to give our recommendations on the best way of rolling out vaccines to the elderly in our area. When the NHS Community Healthcare NHS Trust decided where and how inoculations would take place we were asked to arrange for volunteer support at the centres. It was important that all those offered a vaccination could do so safely and efficiently when attending centres. Government guidelines had to be followed ensuring social distancing, sanitisation of people and equipment and an efficient flow of people requiring inoculations.

NET Continues to

Support The Community

Since March 2020 NET has not only supported the over 60’s and their carers but also with other members of the community needing support during the Covid epidemic. The photographs at the top of the page shows not only volunteers at vaccine centres but doctors helping out at a Dover Street coffee morning as part of their university training. They are now on the NHS frontline.

All Systems Go. ? We Hope Soon. As soon as it is possible to resume activities in a safe and secure way as advised by the government we will start resuming events. Our priorities will be to resume our “Heat & Eat” delivery by volunteers to clients. Dementia Café to help carers. Our NEW Smile Clinic & Laughter Club
