Garfield Weston Foundation
Our work with the Garfield Weston Foundation
The Garfield Weston Foundation (GWF) supports our work across the UK.
A donation of £325,000 from the GWF helped to fund our independent living services in Leicestershire and Gateshead.
In Leicestershire, 538 people now get help from our First Call - Support at Home programme.
This scheme allows older and vulnerable people to remain at home. It cuts down on hospital admissions and encourages community support.
A similar scheme has also been launched at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead. This is in partnership with the Gateshead NHS Health Foundation Trust and HelpForce.
