Funding Boost – John Sykes Foundation
We were incredibly grateful to host John Sykes and Foundation volunteer Sian McCoubrey at our offices recently to accept a £1,000 grant from their Covid-19 Relief Fund.
The funding will be used to pay for annual drug testing kits which keep our community accountable.
John Sykes said of his visit “We are delighted to be supporting Hope and Vision Communities with a Covid-19 Relief Fund Grant. Ultimately, every person needs hope. Reducing the stigma associated with drug and alcohol use is critical and begins with the understanding that those who suffer from addiction are often victims themselves of significant trauma. They deserve inclusive services that address trauma, give support with housing, provide the right medical assistance, and make training and employment accessible. Tony has turned his life around, and I have an enormous amount of admiration for him. I have no doubt that his vision and passion will ensure Hope and Vision’s longevity.”
