We hope you are keeping well and staying safe in the current situation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your on-going support over the years and to offer our services to your organization, friends, relatives and anybody that you know that may be in need of mental health support during these difficult times. The Corona virus pandemic has had a profound effect and presented many challenges for everybody, not least for those who have a history of mental illness. Clubhouse’s resiliency, innovation, passion and dedication have quickly led to an inspiring array of strategies and solutions to address this new reality. Members and staff may no longer be able to gather together in the Clubhouse building, but continue to support each other through this crisis. We are deeply moved by the extraordinary level of care and connection that continues to hold Clubhouse communities together, despite the restrictions regarding physical togetherness.

Clubhouse Gibraltar has been communicating with all its members through various channels and there is an outreach telephone list to ring up those who do not have smartphones or who have specially requested this. A daily newsletter is being provided via text and e-mails to maintain continuity of communication, with tips and ideas and to encourage contributions. Community Support is provided for members in need of hot meals, benefits, or any other problem they need support with and/or liaising with other services in the community.
EFFECT OF THE COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS ON CLUBHOUSE GIBRALTAR’S INCOME
Due to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, we are struggling to raise funds as we are unable to organise our usual public events, or run our charity shop which helps us greatly towards our sustainability. We are nevertheless working hard to maintain the important and crucial service that we provide and we would be grateful if you could consider supporting us financially so that we can continue to help the most vulnerable in our community.
If you would like any further information, please feel free to communicate with us.
