Encompass Donation

Dear Rushden Academy,

I am writing to thank you all at Rushden Academy for the recent donation to Encompass of a selection of white goods and cookers.

As a charity, we work across North Northamptonshire although primarily in Rushden and help those facing poverty, homelessness and addiction.

We support individuals to overcome the immediate challenges of homelessness, addiction, food poverty and isolation; then we empower them to make positive life choices that lead to improved health, housing, employment and active participation in the local community.

We do this through the delivery of several homeless accommodation provisions; an outreach service; three foodbanks; a residential rehab project and dry houses. We are also imminently opening a day centre which will run courses, social groups and facilitate the delivery of other services in order to address challenges faced by clients.

The donation that you have provided, namely 9 cookers; 2 fridges; 1 washing machine; 1 tumble dryer; 3 microwaves and 1 hob, will be a huge help to those facing disadvantage in the local area.

The goods will be used to help equip peoples homes when they move into new accommodation. A lot of our clients live with us temporarily to prevent them rough sleeping, and then we help move them on successfully by addressing barriers to maintaining accommodation. We also rehouse gentlemen who have been through our rehab and equipping their new accommodation for them and their families really helps set them up to succeed.

Thank you again and I look forward to working in partnership with Rushden Academy in the future.

With very best wishes

Jo Burns
