“Could you pass on my thanks to Daniel, Daniel and Melissa for their help last week - even though the visit was quite short, they really brought imagination and enthusiasm to their tasks and I hope we were able to give them a flavour about the work of the Department.”
Disabilities and Dementia Services
Who we are
Jewish Care is the largest health and social care organisation serving the Jewish community in London and the south east of England.
We run over 70 centres and services, caring for more than 7,000 people every week.
We believe Jewish people should have access to specialist services that are designed to meet their needs. This is reflected in the care we provide which recognises traditions, beliefs and cultures, which are frequently shared by Jewish people.
Our clients' emotional needs are just as important as their physical requirements and providing for their day to day needs is just the beginning.
We offer care in an environment that recognises and respects our clients’ Jewish identity. We celebrate Jewish festivals and make Shabbat, helping people feel safe and comfortable in a ‘heimische’ atmosphere, at a time when they may feel most vulnerable.
We work right across the community and provide care regardless of the level or nature of an individual’s religious observance. In doing so, our care recognises people’s differences as well as their similarities.
Our 1,100 dedicated staff and 2,500 volunteers mean that we are able to run over 70 centres and specialist services throughout London and the South East, caring for more than 7,000 people every week in the Jewish community. We provide services for:
People with mental health problems
People with a physical or sensory disability, including those who are visually impaired
Holocaust survivors and refugees
People caring for others (Carers)
A dedicated support and advice line for referrals and service information
