RB Go Above and Beyond

You may remember us saying that RB has teamed up with HHCP to support our essential work across the city. As their official charity partner, we’re receiving enormous support from the company’s entire workforce. This will go toward our Move On project, which helps to transition people into independent living, as well as the purchase of a van for relocating people.

Late last year, after just four months of fundraising, RB had already hit its target of £14,000 that we all believed would take a year to achieve. But they’re not stopping there, as the teams are continuing to fundraise, volunteer and help out with a range of activity, which is making a huge difference to how our charity functions and grows.

Having received our first payment (the full £14,000), we’re now able to buy a large removals van and its insurance, which means that our Move On project is going from strength to strength. In case you haven’t heard about Move On, it starts with us finding a house that needs some TLC and fully redecorating it, from clearing it out and scrubbing everything down, to painting, decorating and even adding furniture. We also provide essentials for the individual or family moving in, such as food, toiletries, baby items, cutlery and anything else that makes a house a home. Thanks to RB, we can also help out with the initial utility bills, making the transition from homelessness to independent living even smoother.

As well as fundraising, the amazing people at RB are also getting stuck in and helping us to breathe new life into these homes. What’s more, the company is offering us all kinds of specialist skills from across multiple departments, including IT training, business admin support and any miscellaneous expertise that might be required either now or in the future. Put simply, RB’s involvement couldn’t be more comprehensive and valuable.

As an ongoing partnership, the difference it makes to HHCP is huge. We now have a constant supply of income, advice, volunteers and advocacy, which is set to make 2019 a milestone year for the charity.

Our CEO, Andrew Smith, and the HHCP team would like to once again thank everyone at RB for their incredible efforts, which are helping to take our organisation forward in leaps and bounds.
