A move into a Jewish Blind & Disabled development means so much more than just bricks and mortar
Each of our developments are unique communities and offer the opportunity for tenants to be part of a warm and welcoming Jewish community allowing for peace of mind, knowing that extra support is on hand should they need it.
Tenants are encouraged to play an active role in their community from organising events to attending tenant forum meetings to raise and discuss concerns or make suggestions for improvements.
Our programme provides a wide range of classes and activities, taking place throughout the week. The programme is developed in consultation with tenants and we try to ensure there is something of interest for everyone. Some examples include:
We are committed to incorporating Jewish values and culture into our developments. We celebrate Shabbat and the Chaggim and work with local Synagogues and community groups to create a unique, supportive non-denominational Jewish community.
Our befriending programme connects tenants to volunteer befrienders either on the phone or in person, reducing the loneliness and isolation that some tenants feel. We try to match volunteers and tenants that have shared interests and this often results in new friendships.
Clive said: “I’ve got benign essential tremor syndrome and I am prone to falling over. Living with Jewish Blind & Disabled has made a huge difference. It is as safe as it possibly can be and I feel part of a supportive Jewish community. It was definitely the right move at the right time.”Terry & Clive, Jewish Blind & Disabled Tenants
