First Names Group supports local charity Housing Matters

20 October 2016

First Names Group has donated £350 to Isle of Man charity, Housing Matters. Our local ‘First Names’ also generously contributed food, toiletries and kitchen supplies to help homeless people and families on the island.

Housing Matters was established in 2007 to provide advice, guidance and support to people in housing crises. The charity is closely aligned to First Names Group’s philosophy that people matter.

Housing Matters was selected by our Isle of Man office as their charity of the month for September. As well as donating supplies, the team used their weekly ‘Dress-down Friday’ collections to raise funds for the cause.

Arthur Torin, Senior Housing Advisor at Housing Matters, commented:

“The complex situations that our clients experience are varied and can include but are not restricted to street homelessness, substandard accommodation, victims of domestic abuse. The donation and supplies First Names Group has contributed will really make a difference to the people House Matters supports through difficult times in their lives.”

Craig Brown, Managing Director of our Isle of Man office, added:

“Housing Matters provides support to people on the island that need it the most. We are delighted to be able to help such a worthwhile cause and hopefully our donations make a difference. At First Names Group we are committed to our people, clients and the communities in which we operate and I could not think of a better cause to support.”
