CATH’s COVID-19 Volunteering Project 送暖行動

In response to the pandemic, our staff and volunteers at the Chinese Association of Tower Hamlets introduced a food distribution service to provide over 100 vulnerable members of the Chinese community with welfare packages, food, and basic essentials such as face masks, hand soap and toilet rolls. Additionally, supporting people to be comfortable and safe with the security of knowing that we would help with whatever they need. 

A great thanks to our volunteers and the companies who helped make this possible: Embassy of the People’s Republic of China (face masks), Legal & General, Westmill Foods (noodle products), Kong Wah (UK) Ltd (tofu products), Royal China Group (face masks), Walplus (face masks), Man Foods Ltd (fresh vegetables).

We teamed up with Meridian wellbeing (formally known as the CHMA) for the Wave 3 London Community Response Fund in order to fulfil the differing needs for those vulnerable. For example:

  • Advice and Advocacy  諮詢及倡導服務 / 咨询及倡导服务
    We provided over the phone and in person support by helping the elderly book GP appointments, contacting the council and making sure every member could make their Covid -19 vaccination appointment online.
  • Getting Online 學習使用網絡平台 /咨询及倡导服务
    We provided individuals with a brand new cellular tablet and a data sim card, free of charge and adjusted it to their needs by formatting the device in Chinese and installing useful applications. One to one training and support was provided to each individual to help them learn how to access online services and communicate digitally.

Elderly Luncheon Club

The aim of the C.A.T.H’s Elderly Luncheon Club has always been providing a safe, warm, friendly and welcoming environment to elderly people of Chinese Origin.

A place to come to enjoy each other’s company to have lunch, share and/ or participate in cultural group activities. Above all, the venue acts as a crucial access point to many other services.
