BES Cares is organised by the Community Support Co-ordinator, Karen Moss, who liaises with the Rabbis and other members of the BES staff team.

The Care Line is a confidential telephone helpline that can be accessed by all synagogue members and their families and is intended to be the first port of call for any welfare or support issues with which you need help. It is not an emergency service. If Karen is not available to take your call, please leave a message and she will return your call as soon as possible. You can expect a confidential, impartial, supportive and non-judgemental service.

Karen is assisted by an experienced group and a team of trained volunteers. There are opportunities for more volunteers and anyone interested is invited to email

The Care Line provides support to people going through problems throughout life – such as divorce, bereavement, mental and physical health difficulties, or a wide spectrum of other challenges which can be so difficult to cope with.
