Friends of the Sick (Chevrat Bikkur Cholim) provides assistance to the sick and the frail in the Jewish Community.
We believe no one should have to cope with illness or old age on their own. We send paid helpers to look after our patients who, sometimes, have little or no family support around them. Our approach is informal and we aim to respond promptly to requests for help.
Some clients cannot afford to pay in full towards the cost of our subsidised services. Please help us make sure no one is turned away because of financial constraints.

Most of us will eventually face the trauma of hearing loss – or already have a loved one who is.
With your help, we can:
· Be an ongoing support and inspiration to families – right from the devastating diagnosis of their baby’s deafness.
· Rescue older people living in care homes from isolation and loneliness and enable them to chat, join in activities and enjoy their final years
· Ensure vulnerable deaf and deafblind people are given lifelong care and support.
For over 65 years JDA has been a specialist community lifeline, enabling people living with deafness to cope with whatever challenges life brings. We receive no statutory funding and depend on legacies and donations to sustain our wide range of services for the Jewish community and beyond.

The League of Jewish Women is a long established charity founded in 1943. Our aims are to give service to the communities we live in, and to give hands-on help where there is a need, irrespective of ethnic grouping, gender or religion. We provide volunteer help in many diverse places such as schools, prisons, hospices and day centres. We work with other organizations such as Macmillan nurses, Witness and Victim Support and Jewish Care. We are the UK affiliate of the International Council of Jewish Women and therefore have worldwide links, and are also affiliated to other national women’s organizations.
