We’re delighted to announce we have been issued a grant award of £2,500 by Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation.
The £2,500 donation will support ‘Entry into Employment Loans’ for our West Berkshire service, whereby service users can apply and get financial and administrative support to obtain essential items needed to access employment. Essentials that can be accessed include entry-level course fees, clothing, equipment, trade tools and access to health and safety certificates. The funding will provide an immediate solution to support an immediate need and will help to support approximately 25 service users.
Clare Maryan, our Director of Development said of the donation: “We are thrilled to be awarded this grant. Service users can be prevented from taking their first step towards employment if they are unable to obtain simple, everyday items, which can be mandatory to enter the workplace. This donation will enable our service users to achieve their employment goals.”
Genevieve Glover, Chair of Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation said: “We are pleased to be supporting Cranstoun. Not only does the charity work with individuals in structured treatment programmes to support people to achieve their substance recovery goals but also provides them with support and funding to get themselves back into employment, increasing their chances of abstinence.”
