Commencing January 2019, we are proud to announce AWARE NI as our official Corporate Charity Partner.
Get ready for an action-packed schedule of events as we pledge to raise as much money as possible for AWARE's vital services.
Announcing the partnership, John McLean said: "We are proud and extremely excited to be partnering with AWARE in 2019-20. In today's society, with local suicide rates higher than anywhere else in the UK, the work that AWARE does is vital and respected by all in Northern Ireland. With a large team at Radius, many of whom work directly with members of the public, we recognise the importance of a positive approach to mental well-being.
AWARE was chosen as our charity partner for 2019-20 because we have seen the positive impact they have had in local communities. At Radius, we pride ourselves in not just housing people, but ensuring their social, physical and mental well-being are all cared for and we are absolutely delighted that we will be able to support AWARE in their work over the next two years".
Karen Collins, Chief Executive at AWARE, said:
"We are delighted to be the the chosen charity partner of Radius Housing and I am really looking forward to seeing what the partnership has to offer over the year ahead. As a charity, the money that people fundraise is vitally important to alow us to continue delivering our services in schools, communities and workplaces across Northern Ireland.
AWARE delivers a Mood Matters Young People programme into schools and community groups to children aged 14 - 18 years old. This programme gives them the skllls and knowledge which they can use to maintain good mental health and build resilience in order to better deal with problems and challenges. The money Radius Housing raises will help AWARE deliver more of these programmes to more of our young people in Northern Ireland".
