Working together to change the lives of people in need

Paul Snape, Deputy Chief Executive, The Bridge, East Midlands: “We work with people of all backgrounds and in lots of different situations. It is quite common for families to be unable to have hot food, as they are without a cooker, or for someone who has been homeless to move into a tenancy and for there to be no bed. Sustaining a tenancy is difficult for so many people in our communities. The work that Charity Link do compliments our work brilliantly. They provide white goods, furniture and many other items for our clients, which means we can focus on helping them with all of the other housing and homelessness prevention related issues which they need support with”.

Rana Rajput, Team Leader, Adhar Project: “I would like to thank the whole team at Charity Link for the amazing work they have done in supporting the Adhar project and some of our existing clients who had experienced severe deprivation. The team throughout the whole process assist with completing applications with a very friendly approach”.

Debbie Dilkes, Tenancy Support Team, Charnwood Borough Council: “I would like to express our thanks and gratitude for the tireless work undertaken by all at Charity Link.

This charity makes a huge difference to our most vulnerable tenants facing poverty, crisis and trauma. The charity grants items to tenants who cannot afford the necessary basics such as a cooker, fridge, washing machine or beds. The assessors turn our applications around in a timely fashion which allows people to move on with on their lives with hope and optimism.

We are very grateful to all involved in this worthwhile organisation”.
