Over the last few weeks, Trivallis’ Charity Partner Group has been working hard behind the scenes to appoint a new charity partner.
After receiving a high volume of applications, short listing the potential charities and finally meeting with the shortlisted to listen to their presentations, the group handed over the final vote to Trivallis’ staff and involved tenants.
A big thank you to all those who took the time to vote and have your say on who you wanted to see as Trivallis’ charity partner for the next two years.
We can proudly announce that the chosen charity is…Valleys Kids!
Valleys Kids has been supporting vulnerable children, young people, adults, and families for over 40 years, working alongside communities to help people help themselves. Valleys Kids supports people of all ages because as they say, “We are all Valleys Kids”.
The charity has been appointed because of the vital support they provide locally for individuals and families across the region, many of which were already facing hardships that have only been worsened by the cost-of-living crisis.
Tracey Cooke, Senior Manager for Partnerships at Trivallis said: “We are excited about our new charity partnership with Valleys Kids. We are looking forward to working together over the next two years to raise funds and awareness that will go towards supporting the challenges the high cost-of-living crisis is having in our communities.
“But this is about more than funds and awareness; this is a partnership focussed on action. If you have any ideas on collaborative projects or volunteering opportunities, please get in touch.”
Elise Stewart, Chief Executive at Valleys Kids said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as Trivallis’ charity partner for the next two years. This builds on a long-standing relationship and comes at a good time as the cost-of-living crisis impacts on communities, so dramatically, together we can make such a significant difference.”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, Valleys Kids became a lifeline to those in the community. This saw them deliver 2,456 family food hampers and 1,176 adult care packages to people in need. They also provided an additional 8,711 wellbeing packs and took over 14700 wellbeing telephone calls.
We are looking forward to working in partnership to raise awareness and funds to help support the work that Valleys Kids do across our communities.
