Isolation, lockdown rules and guidelines across the world have affected some in our community more than others. Even in the best of times, our elderly populations live in greater isolation, now made worse by restrictions imposed to combat the Coronavirus.

It can be a challenge to find ways to share how you care at a distance, however the power of the mail to connect people is formidable. At Quadient, we are immensely proud that our business facilitates connections – because connections matter. Quadient’s mail related solutions team is actively supporting three local organisations, in the USA, in the UK and in France, both financially and with the donation of postal equipment. These donations are already helping these charities to do their essential work connecting the public to those in residential care.

We would love you to join us in supporting these charitable organisations.
