New Trustees to help ‘Bring Joy’ to older people

NATIONAL charity, The Home Instead Senior Care Bring Joy Foundation, which was founded to bring joy into the lives of older people across the UK, has made two new appointments.

Clare Jefferies and Luke Norbury joined the charity this month (October) as new trustees. Clare is a professional in care having run her own Home Instead office in Wimbledon and Kingston for the last ten years. She was previously a trustee with her local Age UK group and remains an active member of the Dementia Strategy Group at Kingston Hospital as well being a member of MacMillan Cancer Support in Merton.

Luke has also successfully run his own Home Instead business in York for the past eleven years and is particularly skilled in strengthening links between the private and public sector. Norbury is currently a trustee with York Centre for Voluntary Service (CVS) as well as working with carers’ groups and Age UK on a local level.

The Bring Joy Foundation is the charitable arm of home care company, Home Instead Senior Care whose mission is ‘to become the most admired care company through changing the face of ageing’. The charity itself is dedicated to supporting and enhancing the lives of seniors across the UK. It does this by funding local community events that enhance and enrich the lives of older people with a focus on combating loneliness and preventing isolation; both of which are real issues amongst the elderly.

Clare and Luke join the charity’s eight trustee board spearheaded by chairman Martin Jones, CEO of Home Instead Senior Care UK.

The Bring Joy Foundation has supported trips to the seaside, provided funding to support regular tea parties and during lockdown has funded the purchase of tablet technology to allow older people to remain connected with family and friends.

Speaking about the appointments, Martin Jones said:

“Both Clare and Luke have demonstrated a real understanding of the issues around social responsibility and the loneliness faced by so many older people in local communities across the UK.

“I am excited to bring them on board as I know they are committed to helping the charity to evolve and achieve our ambitious plans.”
