Set up by the Breyer Group, the Breyer Foundation focuses on many objectives, one of the objectives is the relief of unemployment for the benefit of the general public. The charity achieves these key objectives by improving, maintaining and/or providing public amenities to generate employment in due course.
Since October 2015 the Job Clubs have helped more than 85 Havering Residents back into employment with training and held over 2,000 1-to-1 sessions with Residents (from deprived wards within the Borough), understanding their circumstances and ambitions.
Recently, London Borough of Havering (LBH) joined forces with Havering Citizen Advice (CAH) to submit an application on behalf of Havering Job Clubs, requesting Breyer Foundation to fund the provision of 4 laptop computers, Wi-Fi system, and 2 inkjet printers. This IT equipment will deliver community benefits across the 4 Job Clubs in Harold Hill, Collier Row, Rainham and Romford.
In alignment with the foundation’s objects, the Breyer Foundation released funds to purchase the mentioned IT infrastructures. This donation will enhance the services offered by the Job Clubs; the donated equipment can be used by any Havering resident who wishes to register with an employment agency or any relevant employment opportunity, such as training in IT skills and CV writing.
Alexandra Vella, Breyer Foundation Trustee said: “The Foundation is delighted to support and fund this scheme, unemployment levels are still generally high within our local community, and the Breyer Foundation is pleased to assist in helping to reduce this by supporting the Job Clubs. The correlation with the job club requirements and the Breyer Foundation charitable objectives meant it was a pleasure to release the funds to satisfy the need”.
Following this donation, The Breyer Foundation was invited to attend the opening on the 1st September 2017, with the official opening and Family Fun Day scheduled for later this year. The event was organised to launch the newly built Sapphire Jubilee Community Centre, one of the venues where the donated IT equipment will be used. Next Article
