  • Our NHS makes this country proud
  • Clapping for the very people who put their lives at risk for us
  • A significant proportion of NHS staff are from BAME communities
  • They like all our NHS staff are heroes

SAMEC trust passes our love and recognition to them all in these very difficult pandemic conditions.

VE day gave us all a chance to reflect and marks 75 years since VE (Victory in Europe) Day when the Second World War came to an end in Europe.

SAMEC Trust recognises the fight for liberty and freedom fought by our heroes and VE day commemorations have been affected by the Covid 19 lockdown.

Many of our older people from minority communities from the former Commonwealth fought and supported the war effort.

Samec Trust remembered shared in our national moment of remembrance and a two-minute silence.

Yet as we remember the VE day heroes we can not fail to see how as a society we are failing our older people – the initial absence of Covid deaths in UK care homes  only reinforces the need to redouble our focus on the very generation that gave us VE day.

SAMEC Trust will campaign to restore the dignity of all older people from all communities.
