Here at Tri, we’ve decided that it’s time to start giving back to the local community and as such, we are donating 3% of all permanent recruitment fees to 3 local charities who specialise in reducing isolation and loneliness in the area, creating a more cohesive community.
This offers our clients a great opportunity because each time we fill a role, we will be publicising the fact that they’ve been responsible for creating this positive impact in the area, which they can then shout about this on their websites and social media, helping them to engage with their customers and employees.
After listening to what our employees are passionate about, we’ve chosen to support the following local charities to create some wonderful community impact.
The Befriending Service helps older people to live independently, enabling them to get out of their homes to meet other people, this regular contact helps to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness. They link in with local schools to do intergenerational work whereby students deliver a show, musical event, or just to chat and meet older people. They encourage older people to give talks about their life to students and we are hoping to create a local version of the ‘Old People’s Home for 4 year olds’ TV programme, which will enable preschool children to visit them for tea parties, art and craft workshops and book reading events increasing confidence and wellbeing for both groups.
We financially support the Friendship Project which enables children disadvantaged by their own or their family circumstances to go out with volunteers, to develop their confidence, self esteem, and have some fun. There are currently 62 children in the area who are caring for a sick parent or experiencing very difficult home situations. Together we are helping these children to have some time out at places like the park, Jump In or the Cinema with some spending money which is a rare treat and really improves the children’s self-esteem and self-worth. This one to one attention helps the child to have a positive influence, it broadens their horizons, and helps them to grow in confidence, with the opportunity to learn and experience new things in a safe way away from their home environment.
We are also working with Dogs for Good to provide assistance dogs who support adults and children with a range of disabilities and children with autism. They also train and support community therapy dogs and their specialist handlers to work within communities, hospitals and schools.
