They that trust in the Lord..are like a tree…leaves will be green..no anxiety in drought… nor cease to yield fruit. Jer. 17:7,8
The Evergreen Care Trust is a faith-based registered charity operating since May 2005, which provides volunteer and paid for services for adults experiencing periods of vulnerability in their lives within the local community. We believe that the Church has a central role in addressing the challenge of our ageing society and only by working together can we accomplish this. It has been our experience that the unified Church on the ground is more effective, influential and has greater resources at its disposal. The Church must be utterly committed, not only to working in partnership across the denominations, but also, without compromising core values, with all other agencies (statutory, private and voluntary) serving the same client group.
At this current time of general disillusionment, with funding and service cuts and the growing fear and despair amongst those growing older and their families, the Church must not miss the opportunity to bless their communities with loving and non discriminatory service, and meaningful support. Evergreen Care is keen to share what we have learned in partnership working and establishing appropriate services for older and vulnerable adults.
The Evergreen model operates in the realm of faith and in confidence that God will lead, guide and provide all that is needed for this vital work.
