The national charity - Home-Start UK.
Home-Start is one of the leading family support charities in the UK.
Home-Start volunteers help families with young children deal with the challenges they face. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children.
Across all four nations of the United Kingdom 16,000 volunteers support 30,000 families and 60,000 children to transform their lives.
There are 269 local, independent Home-Starts. At the heart of each Home-Start’s work is home visiting volunteer support.
The local charity - The CLD Trust
Technobreak 2017’s local Herefordshire charity is The CLD Trust and they are supporting their Strong Young Minds project.
Strong Young Minds is a Big Lottery funded project designed to improve the mental health & wellbeing of young people in Herefordshire.
The SYM Project is for young people (10 – 24 yrs) who are disenfranchised, distressed, unemployed, at risk of social isolation, poor achievement & ill health, due to poor mental health and wellbeing.
They work with young people to address issues which can have an adverse effect on their mental health & wellbeing, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self harm, bullying, cyberbullying, relationship breakdown, employability, low self esteem, body image & loss.
The remaining third of the donations pot will be reserved for community projects.
