Every month kinex holds their Community Support Scheme which provides financial awards to the people who are making a positive impact in their community and who will benefit most from their support. In their regional offices across the UK, they get to hear about some fantastic community groups and organisations that are providing invaluable services to improve the quality of life for local people.
This month the local charity that has been awarded with a donation via the Community Support Scheme is Trafford Domestic Abuse Services (TDAS) in Trafford, Manchester.
TDAS have been delivering services to families who have suffered domestic abuse for 27 years and they provide accommodation, community support and advice, along with their domestic abuse programmes for people who have or are suffering domestic abuse. They also provide a Children and young person’s service offering holistic family interventions.
On receiving the donation from kinex, Samantha Fisher, CEO of TDAS said,
“WOW!! This is amazing news, what a lovely early Christmas gift for TDAS service users. We are delighted to receive the funding! Our service users who have suffered the devastating effects of Domestic Abuse often have poor emotional wellbeing and suffer from high levels of stress. We wanted to offer them meditation sessions to help relieve some of this stress and help both their physical and emotional wellbeing. Being able to offer this service is just amazing and will be a fantastic additional support for our families.”
“Thank you so much for your donation and enabling us to continue our life changing services, it really really does make such a difference.”
