The donation will be used by the charity in its work to help people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness with access to private accommodation in Penarth and the Vale.
The charity helps by issuing bond certificate guarantees and access to a range of services such as breakfast clubs, foodbank, money management courses and support for addictions.
The charity was set up in 1996 and housing support worker Jan Booker said, “we are pleased that this cheque for £1,000 will assist people in Penarth and the Vale who are vulnerable and homeless to access rented homes in the area. Home Access can offer ongoing support and advice throughout the persons tenancy with benefits, grant applications or any tenancy issues they may encounter.”
The Community Fund
The Barratt and David Wilson Homes Community Fund donates £1,000 each month to a charity or organisation which improves the quality of life for those living in the region and commercial director David Kelland said Home Access was a worthy recipient of the funds.
“Being able to support organisations like this is one of the most rewarding parts of what we do. As the country’s largest housebuilder we are committed to creating a positive legacy and work closely with local communities.”
In South Wales Barratt also supports Welsh children’s cancer charity LATCH and events such as the Monmouth Raft Race. Last year the company also supported grass roots cycling in South Wales and the Kids Out charity and it has recently completed the creation of a brand new sensory garden at Ysgol y Deri in Penarth.
