BURTON Albion Community Trust is extending its long-standing partnership with Trent and Dove and looking to work together to tackle problems created by Covid-19.
The trust has key partnerships with a strong core of local organisations that share the charity’s values and aims and Trent and Dove is BACT’s preferred Employability and Volunteering Partner.
Trent and Dove is an important provider of affordable homes with more than 6,000 properties, ranging from sheltered accommodation to family homes and everything in between.
With the pandemic creating long-term economic and employment problems as well as its impact on health and well-being, BACT and Trent and Dove will be looking to create even stronger bonds to meet the challenges ahead.
Matt Hancock, BACT’s Head of Community, said: “We are proud of our partnership work with Trent and Dove but with all that has happened because of the Covid-19 pandemic it’s more important than ever for us to join forces.
“Both organisations already make a significant difference to the community but now we have to step up and respond to an even greater need.
“Working with key partners is the best way to make an impact where it’s needed most and together with Trent and Dove, I know BACT’s impact will be significant.”
Ursula Bennion, Chief Executive at Trent & Dove, said: “We have been supporting Burton Albion Community Trust for many years and are delighted to continue working with them to transform homes, lives and communities.
“Like us, BACT puts community at the forefront and since the COVID-19 outbreak our bond has been stronger than ever. We are excited at the opportunities that this partnership will provide for our customers such as volunteering links and supporting our employment programme.”
