Charities in the Community
Every Home Matters is committed to supporting charities in the community as expressed in our Community Engagement Policy. We are a socially responsible organisation and take our involvement in the community very seriously. Some of the organisations we work closely with are:
Age UK: Age UK Merton is an independent charity operating within the national Age UK network to provide services for older adults in the London Borough of Merton. Our role is to ensure that older adults can easily access the advice, support and care they need as they get older.
Carers Support: we have a strong relationship with Carers Support within the M25 who do excellent work within the communities to help and advise the many self-funded and voluntary carers who are quite frankly unsung heroes.
The Alzheimer’s Society & Dementia Friends Initiative: we are each members of the society and trained Dementia Friends. Cheryl is a fully trained Dementia Friends Champion and is able to provide support and advice to others and to give them the necessary training to become a Dementia Friend.
Charity Shop Gifting : through our business activities, our clients often identify items which they wish to dispose of, which, whilst reusable, would be either financially punitive to attempt to sell on their behalf or are indeed unsellable. We recommend to clients in these instances that they gift those items either to family or to charitable causes via high street charity outlets. Whilst we will always respect our clients’ choice of charity we also have a list of preferred charities to whom we regularly gift items and recommend them to our clients in the absence of a preference of their own.
Charitable Fund Raising & Donations : we are committed and frequent volunteers for charitable fund raising events and to see who we support please click on our blog for the latest news. We also make regular donations to a number of charities.
Ruils: Ruils is a local charity that supports children and adults with disabilities and the elderly to live independently, be part of their community, and to live life to the full, within the borough of Richmond. We provide information, advice, befriending and activities to our clients and their families.
Richmond Aid: supporting people of all ages with all disabilities, including physical and sensory impairments, mental health issues and learning difficulties.
We can signpost you to any of the above relevant charities and contact them on your behalf.
