As a charity, HHE cannot function without the generous and ongoing financial support from funders. New grants and new ways of attracting additional funding are always being sought and we are grateful for the cash injections and business support which have boosted the organisation so far.
Support has been given to HHE by the Provide Foundation for three years.
The grants programme, managed by Essex Community Foundation, is aimed at helping people in mid Essex to have better access to community health services by supporting voluntary and community organisations.
HHE received the latest grant from the Foundation in recognition of our commitment and dedication to improve the health and wellbeing of people in our community.
A three-year partnership between HHE and Lloyds Foundation has now been vital to the progress and success of the charity. The post of programme director, held by Graham Pooley, has largely been funded for three years by the Foundation as well as the offer of a place on the Leadership and Sustainability course run by School for Social Entrepreneurs.
In addition, there has been consultancy support to develop a new Outcomes framework and a fresh new website.
Graham said: “Quite apart from the financial support, it has been a real plus to have practical input from professionals and to feel part of a very supportive group of CEOs in other charities at various stages of their development.”
Our generous supporters past and present include:
“More importantly I have, as a direct consequence of HHE’s help, rebuilt my life.”
“It is fantastic when I see I have made a breakthrough with a client, or they have made a breakthrough for themselves as a result of our sessions.”
“HHE provides a very positive service. I like being a part of that team and involved in helping people to recover from their addiction and teaching them how to live their lives free from alcohol.”
“We are delighted volunteer Nina Ashenden has joined us and is sharing menu planning and cooking skills one evening a week – the results are very popular!”
