LEADING warranty provider Domestic & General is delighted to announce the launch of a new national charity partnership with Get Connected.
Get Connected is a UK wide free and confidential helpline service for young people who need support with a wide range of issues. More than 80 percent of those who have used the helpline say their lives improved after contacting the charity.
Dean Keeling, UK managing director of Domestic & General, said: “We are thrilled to be working alongside Get Connected.
“Each day we are there for our customers when they need us most. We take the worry out of breakdowns, and now we want to help Get Connected ease young people’s worries.
“This partnership demonstrates our mutual core values particularly being fair, caring and dependable. We want everyone across the company to come together and work with a spirit of ownership and adventure.
“Our expectmore>> vision is about delivering the outcomes that truly matter. That’s why this year we are committed to going the extra mile.
“We want to celebrate teams and colleagues who have a passion for fundraising and community work - and make a difference in the communities we work in across the UK.”
Last year Get Connected supported more than 228,000 children and young people to find the help they needed with a range of issues such as homelessness, self-harm, bullying and drug addiction. This free and confidential service supports young people who don’t know where else to turn.
John Schless, Director of Fundraising and Development at Get Connected, said the support of such a large firm was crucial to the ongoing success of the charity.
“We are delighted that Domestic & General are on board and helping us take one more step towards ensuring that young people all over the UK can find the most appropriate help and support for their situation, whatever they’re facing.
“With this kind of support we can continue to expand our services and help even more children and young people year on year.”
Domestic & General will be supporting Get Connected in a number of ways including fundraising, volunteering and raising awareness to help thousands of children and young people in crisis.
