Giving Back

One of the greatest rewards of our success is that we are able to give back and support our chosen charities through our annual make a difference campaign. We predominantly support a number of smaller, lesser-known local charities. We provide support in various ways from fundraising, providing space for meetings and events to working with groups outside working hours.

Our team have committed themselves to some challenging events over the years which we will always encourage and strive to support. We have had runners in the Yorkshire 10K, 100k cycle rides, walking the Three Yorkshire Peaks and Skydives just to name a few.

We regularly support local community projects neighbouring both our sites and head office to assist in the needs which have been identified in each region.

Throughout 2021 we raised £5500.00 to support our chosen charities. Your support really does make a difference!

PACT

Working alongside Ward 6 at the Sheffield Children's Hospital, PACT support the families of children who are undergoing cancer treatment.  They offer support such as a free of charge comfortable house for the families and siblings to use, within very close proximity to the Hospital. The team support loved ones with sandwiches and refreshments throughout the week, enabling them to stay with their child, and reduce costs through such a difficult time.  Family breaks, free of charge in one of two caravans in the UK offer much needed time for respite between or after treatment. PACT run regular bereavement coffee mornings to support and network the families who have lost a child to cancer, as well as assisting to fund materials and resources for the play specialists that spend time with the children under care, helping to keep them stimulated and aid recovery. They also support community nurse requests with purchases that the NHS cannot supply – for example, specialist hoists, mattresses, pillows.

Les Hoey MBE Dream Maker Foundation

The charity helps children and their siblings going through grueling treatments to make their dreams come true meeting celebrities such as Johnny Depp,  Ed Sheeran, Beyonce and The Scotland football team. The children are also given  the chance to go along to concerts, theatre shows, football games, outings to theme parks, Zoos, Restaurants or anything they desire to make their lives a little more bearable during this hard time.  To see the children smile and for the families to have the memories of their sick children enjoying themselves is priceless and having fun instead of being in a hospital environment is amazing and all worthwhile. Les Hoey are a small charity with only 3 employees, based within very close proximity to our Regional office in Bellshill.   

 

 

Rotherham Fostering / Look After Children's Council (LACC)

Not only this, but also raising awareness of Fostering in Rotherham and the wider community.
