We are excited to announce our recent charity partnership with Bridge the Gap in Derby, a local charity dedicated to supporting the mental health of the younger generation.
Founded in 2017, Bridge the Gap offers a unique literacy-based programme that seamlessly combines healthcare and education. By creating a secure environment for children to explore various strategies for managing their emotions, their aim is to empower these young minds with essential tools to navigate the complexities of life.
This collaboration with Bridge the Gap is a testament to our unwavering commitment to supporting local organisations and is in perfect alignment with our overarching mission to contribute to the betterment of the communities in which we operate.
Nikki Webster, Director and Mental Health Lead at Bridge the Gap said:
“Bridge the Gap are delighted to accept a very kind and generous donation from Peveril Homes as part of our Hope Project.
“The project focuses on businesses in Derby and the local area coming together to show their support for the children of our city. Unfortunately, in Derby, mental health statistics for our young people are at an all-time low, where 80% of children in schools state they're struggling with their mental health (Young Minds 2023).
“This donation from Peveril Homes to Bridge the Gap will allow for the purchasing of furniture and resources for our new therapeutic space where we plan on supporting more young people. We are beyond grateful.”
Karina Lang Sales and Marketing Manager at Peveril Homes said,
“At Peveril Homes, we've always been deeply committed to our local community and its wellbeing. Supporting Bridge the Gap aligns perfectly with our mission to make a positive impact on the lives of those in our local area.”
