Chrisia Fund

All charitable monies raised through sponsored events, coffee mornings and promotional events sponsored by the Nexus Business Networking Group are added into our “Chrisia Fund”. The fund can be used to provide emergency respite care, bereavement support and mobility aids. The “Chrisia Fund” and monies raised by the Nexus Group have enabled us to start two new projects which are supported by these funds. The two new projects are – ‘The Carers Information Group’ offering a support forum and guest speakers to carers and ‘The 18-35 Year Old Social Group’ which meets once per month and enables persons with a Learning Disability supported by Carers Trust EHHR Care Support Workers, to take part in community activities, enhancing their life and social skills.
