At hpjv solicitors we are committed to making a full contribution to supporting our local community by sponsorship of local events and supporting the use of local business services whenever possible.
We actively encourage our staff to take part in charitable causes which can include a dawn ascent of Pen Y Fan, Charity Bake Off, Inflatable 5K in Chepstow, Newport Marathon and the Cardiff Half Marathon.
Our chosen charity changes on an annual basis and we ask our staff to help with choosing a charity for the firm to support and to come up with innovative fundraising ideas.
In 2018 we are delighted to be supporting The Wallich a charity that strives to make life better for those who are experiencing homelessness.
About The Wallich
The Wallich is a Welsh homelessness charity that operates under three core objectives: getting people off the streets; keeping people off the streets; and creating opportunities for people.
Running more than 70 diverse projects, across 19 local authorities, The Wallich works with more than 8,000 people experiencing homelessness each year and across Wales.
Getting people off the streets
The Wallich’s Rough Sleepers’ Intervention Teams (RSITs) operate in Cardiff, Swansea, Bridgend and Newport and Wrexham every morning.
Keeping people off the streets
The Wallich works tirelessly to identify the causes of homelessness and match them with longer-term solutions. Suitable hostels, supported and temporary accommodation all provide a shelter. Other support services, including substance misuse and mental health management, work with vulnerable people to develop and prevent future homelessness.
Creating opportunities for people
Structured learning and employment programmes at The Wallich encourage participants to use their current skills, or gain new ones, in order to get back into volunteering, education or employment.
