Since 1977, Colets has been delivering a not-for-profit service to the entire community of Thames Ditton. Whilst our ability to serve our members in-club is now limited, we feel it is right to continue to support those who need our help within the community.
Colets, in conjunction with community leaders in local Government and Healthcare providers, will be running a Community Outreach programme. Through the mobilisation of our hardworking staff, Colets will seek to offer support and care to those in the local area affected by COVID-19. This support is not meant to replace official healthcare and social services but rather to back them up.
The Outreach Team will seek to offer simple services to those in the community who are undergoing self-isolation and do not currently have the channels in place to help with certain activities.
With help from our volunteers, particularly those from VC Colets, we have already been able to make a huge difference for people in the community. Members of our society that may have been left without someone who they could call upon have been relieved of all stress and fear thanks to the work by our 150-strong team of volunteers.
