SEGRO helps Ashford Place

segro ashford placeSEGRO have made a £5,000 community grant to Ashford Place, a Cricklewood based charity providing community services, social enterprise development and community engagement.

The organisation is currently the Brent charity of the year, running a number of community initiatives to improve the lives of local residents.

The funding will go towards starting a volunteering programme in the Borough, which will work hand- in-hand with some of the other successful initiatives already run by the charity.

Ashford Place offers a variety of resources to the Brent community, and particularly the Cricklewood area.  Some of their major initiatives include running services for elderly and isolated residents, engaging with young people, helping vulnerable people back to work and public realm improvements.

Martin Kidd of SEGRO said: “We are committed to supporting community groups, which place an emphasis on enhancing the skills of local residents and helping vulnerable people.  When we heard about the number of successful initiatives that Ashford Place runs to support the local community, it encouraged us to make a contribution towards the work of this important community initiative.”

Danny Maher, Chief Executive at Ashford Place added: “We are grateful to SEGRO for their generous donation, which will enable us to start our new volunteering programme.  Working with companies like SEGRO will help us identify additional private sector partners, who can provide jobs and valuable skills to the local community.”
