PCH has donated much needed funds to six local charities and community organisations across the city, who are working hard to keep up with demand as people and families continue to be affected by financial and food hardships. 

We have seen first-hand the impact that the cost of living crisis is having on our residents and local people in our city, and through our donations we hope to support charities who are feeling the strain as more people struggle to access food and the services that they need.

PCH has made a donation to Provide Devon, Age UK Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall Food Action (DCFA), Plymouth Foodbank, Tamar Grow Local and Southway Community Group CIC who provide valuable support to some of our residents and others in need across Plymouth and the surrounding areas.

Jonathan Cowie, our Chief Executive visited Provide Devon and Age UK, to meet with their staff to hear how important donations are to sustain their work within the community.

Jonathan said: “We continue to be inspired by the collections and donations that our staff have been involved with across Plymouth, to help provide food and other supplies to people who have been struggling. Our Feed the Foodbank Christmas Donation Week provided Keyham Green Places (KGP) with much needed supplies to help local families this Christmas.

“We already have links to the charities we have donated to, and the donation will help sustain their continued efforts as the charity sector continues to face financial uncertainty.

“The donations will be of great assistance to them and to the residents they support and allow them to focus on delivering food parcels to residents and continue to support the people of Plymouth over the Christmas period rather than worrying about funding.”

Maddie Bailey, Assistant Manager at Provide Devon, said: “The generous donation from PCH will allow us to continue to provide much needed essential food items that make up our crisis food parcels for families experiencing food insecurity across Plymouth. We continue to see a large rise in referrals and can respond, generally within two hours and hopefully ensuring families are not going hungry.”

Mark Haydon, Lead Manager at Plymouth Foodbank Hub, said: "Without the support of local companies and individuals, Plymouth Foodbank would not survive. We are so grateful to everyone at Plymouth Community Homes for the kind and amazing gift and the money received will go a long way in helping many people in our city".
