“I would like to express my admiration and appreciation of all the help that Paperweight – and in particular Daniel – has offered me.  I cannot say too often or too strongly how much that has helped.  It was not just what Daniel did, but how he did it – sensitively and so kindly, and yet sorting out the many problems that I found so difficult to deal with.”




“I don’t know how I managed without the Paperweight Trust…”

South London Community Support Service, Nightingale Hammerson



“Paperweight and Jewish Care are a good recipe for supporting people in the community. Current changes in health and social care point to directing people to take control of their own financial and administrative issues. Paperweight is at the forefront of empowering people to do precisely that. As social services reduce their involvement, services like those provided by Paperweight will become more crucial in the community.”

Paula Plaskow 

Team Manager, NW Community Support, Jewish Care


“You have a wonderful understanding of how the community works and you have been very helpful to us.”

“It is wonderful working together with Paperweight, you are a much needed and a very valued resource ”

Judie Broch

Manager at Shalvata


“When my husband was so very ill
His NHS care was a bitter pill
I saw an article in the Jewish Tribune
Not knowing if it would be needed later or soon

Then after my husband’s death I knew
That really very few –
People with the expertise to help me cope
So Paperweight gave me help to hope

Any problems I encountered were sorted out
So the concerns vanished and it was all about
Making a phone call and then they were really kind
Paperweight the best help I could find

So on behalf of other widows too
Paperweight, I can truly thank you
With special thanks and appreciation to you all
As you go out of your way, I can only say
A huge “Thank you”
