In light of the national emergency our country is continuing to face, NFU Mutual has allocated a ?2million fund help local frontline charities during 2021. This follows ?1million of support delivered by NFU Mutual? Agency Giving Fund in 2020, which helped charities across many sectors to keep their life-changing services going throughout the pandemic.
To ensure these donations reach all corners of the UK and are directed where they?e needed most, NFU Mutual? Agents, with over 300 offices nationwide, have been given the opportunity to nominate local charities to receive a share of the fund. The funds will offer support as lockdown measures continue to impact our communities, providing both emergency support and to help build long-term resilience.
The Perth Agency nominated to split the ?6451.62 donation between two charities ?Perth CAB (Citizen? Advice Bureau) and Perth & Kinross ADHD Support ?to help deliver their important work.
Perth & Kinross ADHD supports many families throughout the local community - not only with ADHD, but with ASD and Sensory Processing difficulties ?and has seen significant demand during the pandemic. They run workshops and sessions in the community to spread awareness, as well as providing information to allow for a better understanding of these conditions. Without funding they would not be able to support so many with their knowledge.
Perth Citizen's Advice Bureau (CAB) has continued to provide a seamless service supporting thousands of people through the pandemic - responding to increased call volumes and advice requests across all topics to those who have reached out including redundancy, furlough, debt, and access to benefits. The team of dedicated staff and volunteers have risen to the challenges presented and maintained their commitment to public support throughout with no breaks in service.
NFU Mutual? ?2million Agency Giving Fund forms part of a series of initiatives NFU Mutual has committed for the benefit of customers and communities affected by coronavirus.?
