Turning a Mitzvah into a Relationship

At FRS we value individual differences, and we want everyone to feel welcome and part of the community.   This is recognised by the accreditation from the Mayor of London that FRS is a Dementia Friendly Venue.  This means that we have a building that is accessible, and volunteers and staff who are trained in dementia in its various forms.  

At FRS we recognise that our members can find themselves needing a little support – maybe some shopping or someone to pick up their medication, perhaps a lift to hospital or a myriad other types of help, either short or long-term.

We also recognise that many members of the community are keen to offer that help. Often, it brings people together who would not necessarily know each other, and a relationship is formed that helps everyone feel that bit better about the world we live in.

You'll find much more information in the links on the top right. If you need help or wish to volunteer, please email hannah.jacobs@frs.org.uk or alternatively phone the shul on 020 8446 3244.
 


Chesed also runs or supports groups you may care to join:
* Wellbeing 
Autism Support group
Singing for Memory
* ADD Support Group
* Bridge (every Thursday - see calendar)

Please email Hannah Jacobs for more information on any of these: hannah.jacobs@frs.org.uk


Safety
We ask our drivers to ensure that they are fit to drive, have a current driving licence; their car is regularly serviced, correctly insured and generally kept roadworthy.  Also, that they have informed their insurance company that they are volunteering. 
DBS checks are undertaken where money or dementia is concerned and you are helping one-to-one.
Covid. If there are any concerns, our volunteers will wear a mask, wash their hands and, where appropriate, open windows and keep at a distance.
