Caia Park Partnership Press Release 30.03.2020
Caia Park Partnership is seeking to provide extra basic help to people affected by the current Covid-19 pandemic. The aim is to provide an additional layer of help to quickly respond to the needs of local people in Caia Park who are suffering added hardship/ crisis at this time. Our aim is to ensure the people have food, basic necessities, fuel and mobility issues resolved.
Caia Park (Queens Park) has a strong history of fundraising, self-reliance and community work within its neighborhood. We need this more today than ever. Organised under the Caia Park Partnership’s charitable purposes we hope those more fortunate can offer monetary donations or any other meaningful donations such as food and essential items etc. to support this initiative.
Working with our partners
We will work with other charities, relief and coordination organisations to ensure the speedy and accurate distribution of this relief aid to protect those most in need in our area. Any un-used funds at the end of the current crisis will be used to support the Holiday Hunger Project in Caia Park or a similar not-for-profit project.
Active practitioners, community leaders and volunteers in Caia Park who are in contact with our most vulnerable residents can, via a simple but robust referral process, apply on beneficiaries’ behalf. These include
- Youth and Community Workers
- Community/ County Councillors/ Caia Park Community Council Staff
- Church Staff
- DWP Staff
- WCBC Staff (Teachers/ Social Workers etc.)
- Community Leaders in Good Standing
If you feel you could support the cash fundraising appeal please use link below and please do pass and share about your networks; all fundraising appeals heavily relay on good publicity:
- It is important to note, this initiative is not in place of food banks/universal credit awards for food, support for fuel poverty and food vouchers for children on free school meals etc., these should always be sought first.
- Coordination of volunteers in response to Covid-19 in Wrexham is being led by the Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW), and Caia Park Partnership is an active partner in these arrangements.
We will strive to support those eligible ASAP and as frequently and fairly as possible. Please be patient as this is a challenging situation for us all. Our staff and volunteers are acting as key and frontline workers and their safety and wellbeing is paramount.
If you feel you have items or other forms of support or require a referral form for those in need, please contact:
