Bournville Village Trust (BVT) have been shortlisted in the Best Company Health & Wellbeing initiative in Inside Housing’s Housing Heroes awards for our Well Winter Campaign.
The campaign supported nearly 700 households in our communities who were struggling with the cost of food, fuel and essential items to keep well over the winter months.
This included vouchers for food, fuel and other essential items, signposting to other support services and much more.
One resident who received support through the campaign was Gary. He said: “Bournville Village Trust gave me an energy voucher and a voucher for Aldi which was really helpful. They also helped me buy a winter coat and a duvet.”
Arthur Tsang, Director of Communities at BVT, said: “The Well Winter campaign is an essential tool in helping us to support residents to overcome barriers and thrive. Staff worked really hard to deliver it and reach as many people who needed support as possible and it’s great for them to be recognised in this way.”
