“Thank you for your understanding and practical help. I was so grateful, specially since I'm all alone."

Helping people keep the dignity and independence that comes from living in their own home is central to what we do.

Friends of the Sick (Chevrat Bikkur Cholim) gives help and support to the sick and the frail in the Jewish Community.

We believe no-one should have to cope with illness or old age on their own. We send paid carers (most of whom are Jewish) to look after our patients; some of them have little or no family support.

We make a small charge for our services. This does not cover our costs. For clients who cannot afford the cost of our carers we waive our charges. We therefore rely on the generosity of the community to help us fund our activities.

Friends of the Sick operates as a small team of dedicated staff. We offer a rapid and flexible response to care requirements.

You can find out more about our services here, how to support us here, and about working for us here.

Thank you for your interest in Friends of the Sick.
