Through the DPS Fund, every three months £20,000 is awarded to charities that help those who are affected by housing-related issues.
In our eighth round of awards, the applications were stronger than ever so every detail was taken into consideration. We’re really pleased to announce that Calderdale Smartmove was one of the successful charities.
Here’s a little bit about what they do…
Calderdale Smartmove provides a high quality, client-centred service that helps homeless and vulnerable people find accommodation in their local area.
Chris Leonard, Senior Business Manager at The DPS said: “Calderdale SmartMove plays an important role in the local community by housing those in need and providing support and education to help people access employment…”
The donation will allow Calderdale Smartmove to provide security bonds that will help them secure accommodation for the people that need it most.
Craig George, at Calderdale Smartmove, said: “For many people, finding long-term accommodation is extremely challenging, and by giving more individuals and families a helping hand, we can make sure more people have somewhere safe and comfortable to live.
“We’re really grateful to The DPS for the funding, and it’s great to work with organisations that share Calderdale Smartmove’s ethos.”
Good luck to Calderdale Smartmove. We hope the donation helps you continue doing great work.
