This Harvest Festival Season, employees from the Nottingham office of integrated property services and project delivery specialist, Styles&Wood collected groceries, toiletries and household goods for the Framework Housing Association Feeding Futures Appeal.
Framework is both a charity and a specialist housing association, dedicated to helping homeless people, preventing homelessness, and promoting opportunities for vulnerable and excluded people to change the direction of their lives. This year, donations from the Feeding Futures Appeal will be sent to Rock Court in Mansfield.
Rock Court offers vulnerable young people a place to stay while they find their feet. In the long term, it is helping young people to live up to their potential and make a successful transition into adult life by offering links to training, education and employment in a professional and supported way. Rock Court gives some of the most vulnerable young people in our society – many of whom come from extremely challenging backgrounds – a chance to move away from a life of entrenched social exclusion and homelessness and move towards a happier and more prosperous future.
The donations will provide food packs for those in need and supply cookery course ingredients to help develop cooking and budgeting skills for independence.
Martin Ward, Portfolio Services Director at Styles&Wood, commented: “I would encourage everyone to really get behind this initiative. I personally saw behind the scenes and these donations make a huge, huge difference.”
