CityWest Residential, CityWest Homes' estate agent, has donated £30k to the Young Westminster Foundation as part of its support for the charity over the next three years.
The donation was made as part of the agent’s pledge to reinvest all of its profits back into Westminster’s communities.
Money from the donation will go towards a number of different projects over the next three years, with the Young Westminster Foundation already supporting youth clubs, training and activities for young people across Westminster.
Phil Barron, Chief Executive Officer of the Young Westminster Foundation said: “We’re delighted to receive this funding from CityWest Residential which will be distributed to our member organisations through our next small grants programme, supporting our vision that all young people in Westminster to grow up healthy, safe and happy with the best opportunities for brighter futures.
“The funding will enable our members, major youth clubs through to smaller grassroots community groups, to deliver services for young people and we are really grateful to CityWest Residential for providing this support!”
The donation is just one of the ways that CityWest Residential invests in Westminster with the organisation currently funding an employment service for residents, which last year provided over 150 people with advice and helped over 90 into work.
Oliver Miller, Director of CityWest Residential said: “We are really excited about our partnership with the Young Westminster Foundation, they do absolutely brilliant work across Westminster and we’re looking forward to supporting them over the coming years.
“It’s really important to us that we can contribute to the communities we work in and I fully believe this donation will be a big step in helping us to do this.”
