Covid-19 Update

A message from our Chief Executive, Richard Franklin

Given the current Coronavirus (COVID – 19) pandemic, Kisharon invoked its Business Continuity Operational Plans with effect from 9 March.

The objective is for Kisharon to take all necessary steps to maintain continuity of service and to take reasonable, appropriate and measured precautions to protect people we support, staff, family members, Kisharon volunteers and supporters. If there are any queries in relation to how we are implementing these plans please email

I wish at this serious time to praise the swift response to these unprecedented circumstances by Kisharon staff and supporters to the significant challenges presently faced.

Our main fundraising dinner on 3 May, along with other challenge events over the next 8 weeks have now been cancelled or postponed. This means we must find in excess of £1million before 31 August 2020 by alternative means.

We would therefore welcome any creative (viable) fundraising ideas by emailing as well as any generosity for Kisharon’s essential services. You can donate to Kisharon here to help assist people with learning disabilities who we all wish to see supported at this particularly critical time.

Thank you for all your commitment understanding and ongoing support .
