Sunshine Charity

The Loneliness and Community Charity

The Sunshine Charity is a new start-up loneliness and community charity which is hoping to make a difference to the lives of those suffering from loneliness and social isolation. Prior to Covid19, 1 in 20 people in the UK said they were suffering from loneliness and this number has risen dramatically in 2020.

We want to be the 'Sunshine' in people’s lives and give them a reason to want to carry on, give them a community and to bring them out of the darkness that they feel trapped inside.

The Sunshine Charity was born out of love, and a passion to make change based on the experiences of the Founder's sister, who has been living with Cerebral Palsy all of her life; the loneliness and social isolation that both the physical and mental disability has caused her, such as no friends, inability to do things for herself and the lack of experience within the health and social care system to understand her needs and to make her feel human, has all led to her feeling suicidal and wishing to end her life.

We need your help!!! We can’t do this alone, there are people currently waiting for support and to feel that human connection and warmth and we need help!!!

We can bring 'Sunshine' into people’s lives by being there for all lonely people within our community!

We aim to be that human touch, the connection that brings people together, so they need no longer feel alone, in darkness, or feeling their life has no meaning.

We aim to inspire, build confidence, connect people together, build social and life skills and a community, so that life has meaning again, and 'Sunshine' may flood the lives of all those who need our services.

 

We are seeking qualified and experienced volunteers who are willing to run sessions for people suffering from loneliness and social isolation in a wide range of areas, from 1st February 2021 onwards, including but not limited to:

  • Mindfulness, Mental Health Skills, Mental Wellbeing, etc
  • Thai Chi, Yoga, Relaxation Techniques, etc
  • Fitness and Exercise Sessions
  • Healthy Living and Wellbeing Sessions
  • Confidence Boosting Sessions
  • Alternative Therapy Sessions
  • Sports and Games Sessions
  • Creative Arts Session
  • And other sessions that will increase social networking and help stop loneliness and social isolation.

These sessions can be online based via Zoom or physically in the park or at our centre in EC4M in London. The sessions can be one off, short term or longer term depending on your availability and how much you would want to volunteer with us at the Sunshine Charity.

 

Why not volunteer with us and help us transform the lives of vulnerable people suffering in silence and darkness and let us break the chains of social isolation and loneliness, bring in the Sunshine and help make a difference in the lives of those in need by creating a community.
