Support for Live at Home scheme

Staff at ILS World have given the Isle of Man's Live at Home scheme a boost with a £2,000 donation.
2nd January, 2019

The money was raised through dress down days and cake baking and was presented by group chief executive officer, Chris Eaton to the charity's chief executive, Jackie Bridson.

Each year staff at ILS World, which is based on the Summerhill Business Park in Douglas, vote for a group they would like to support for 12 months. There was overwhelming backing for the Live at Home scheme for 2018 as it helps more than 700 of the Islands older adults avoid loneliness and isolation through befriending and a wide range of social events.

ILS World has provided independent fiduciary services to professional advisors, international corporate groups and private clients for more than 25 years. It has more than 75 people working at offices in the Isle of Man, British Virgin Islands, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, London and Portugal.

Chris Eaton said: "Older people are vulnerable to social isolation and Live at Home offers a wide range of activities to help overcome loneliness. Everyone at ILS works together to raise money during the year and we hope our contribution will help the group continue to offer activities that supports the health and wellbeing of seniors."

Jackie Bridson said: "Live at Home is delighted to have had the support of ILS World. As an independent Manx charity it is through the support of local businesses and individuals helping to raise money via various means we provide the services we do for our members. For that, we are extremely grateful and have enjoyed working with them."
