National Emergencies Trust Funding Awarded To Alabaré


The National Emergencies Trust (NET) has partnered with HIWCF to award Alabaré a grant of £5,610 to help those most affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. 

The funding will specifically enable us to provide ongoing support to our Young People's services in Andover during the pandemic. It will enable us to purchase the essential items needed to keep our clients safe and provide them with the means to self-isolate. It will also mean we are able to continue to provide support to our Young People in safe and appropiate manner.

Vanessa Bedford, Alabaré's Operations Manager for Young People said:

“Thanks to the generous support of the National Emergencies Trust and HIWCF we have been able to provide additional support to our Andover Young People Services during the Coronavirus pandemic. Through the funding we have not only been able to buy essential household items including PPE but also items to help our Young People deal with their emotional wellbeing. It is vitally important that we ensure that our residents manage their mental health through this time and therefore we are buying forms of games and creative equipment to give them valuable use of their time."

Jonathan Cheshire OBE, HIWCF Chairman commented

“We are delighted to be able to support Alabaré in their work to help those in need in the local community. Local charities, community groups and voluntary organisations are providing a lifeline to those less fortunate, and it is heartening to see that these organisations can react so quickly and be so resourceful in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. The vital services that these organisations provide are more crucial now than ever before but are under threat more than at any other time."
