Published: 8 July 2022
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, attended Save the Family’s charity event to find out more about the work that they do and to meet with other groups who are working to support homeless and vulnerable families from across the county.
Save the Family provide accommodation and support to families in need across Cheshire with the aim to keep families together and tackle the underlying causes of their homelessness.
Taking place on Friday 8 July, the event was organised to encourage relationships and connections between organisations in Cheshire who are all working to provide support and resources for families in need.
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, said:
“It was an honour to be invited along to Save the Family’s networking event. Building relationships between the groups who support Cheshire’s communities is key and means they can only go from strength to strength.
“Being accessible to our communities is very important to me and it is great to hear about the incredible work that goes on across the county to help the most vulnerable members of our society.”
Attendees from organisations across Cheshire joined the event. Representatives from Cheshire East Council and Warrington Women’s Aid were present as well as individuals from local food banks and other charities.
John Dwyer added:
“It has been really beneficial attending the event and meeting the people who share my priority of protecting vulnerable and at-risk people. It has also been a great opportunity to make the groups aware of my Community Action Fund, which enables organisations to make bids of up to £5,000 to help support their important projects.”
