We are delighted to annouce the creation of a new charitable fund for families in Milton Keynes.
We have chosen to partner with Milton Keynes Community Foundation, a leading grant-making charity helping in Milton Keynes. Over 30 years MK Community Foundation has provided over £20millon of support to local charities and community groups through their grants programme and rent subsidies, helping to make Milton Keynes a great place to live and work.
The fund will be allocated through the foundation’s various grant programmes, so that local people have access to good quality support and advice in times of difficulty and to help the alleviation of stresses that are associated with relationship breakdown.
We believe that Milton Keynes is a thriving and exciting place to live and work. As a firm, we want to be able to contribute to our local community and give something back. We judge that MK Community Foundation is best placed to help us target our charitable giving and maximise the benefit of our contributions. MK Community Foundation supports a range of projects in Milton Keynes that align with our own benevolent priorities.
In our work, we frequently encounter families and children who are suffering from the effects of relationship breakdown or domestic abuse. With the cuts in legal aid and the rise in court fees, many people in Milton Keynes cannot afford the help they need.
Working with MK Community Foundation, we want to help these people. We hope that our fund will give local charities and community groups the means to support the victims of relationship breakdown in Milton Keynes.
