"People keep talking about when things get back to "normal". This is life for us. We are used to being restricted in what we can do and loneliness and isolation is a big part of our lives and will continue to be so long after the coronavirus crisis has passed." HIP Member.
Help us to continue to support our HIP members now, in the future and for as long as they need us.
Thank you and keep safe
