Places for People Homes is utilising its Community Investment Fund and Places Foundation is partnering with Group supplier, Travis Perkins, to ensure charities and community groups which provide essential services to our customers get the funding they need to maintain or increase services for the most vulnerable.
Colleagues across Cotman, Derwent, Chorus, Living Plus, Castle Rock Edinvar and Homes have nominated charities and community groups in their areas that make a real difference to the local community.
Over 40 front-line projects across England and Scotland including, food banks, baby banks, community centres and homeless charities will benefit from the social value funding.
One of the recipients of the funding is Edinburgh South East Food Bank, which has been awarded £1,250. The food bank which is run by the charity, Blythswood Care, has experienced a 50% increase in demand since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis.
