Barratt Homes: Housebuilder Barratt Homes is supporting Sevenoaks charity Friends for Families with a £1,500 donation.  

Founded in 2018, Friends for Families is a small charity operating in the Sevenoaks area, whose mission is to provide support to families facing any financial hardship. 

As part of its Community Fund Initiative, Barratt Kent is supporting Friends for Families with a donation which will continue to uphold the charity’s dedicated efforts for 2024. 

The funds will help to provide practical assistance to families in need, including essential white goods and furniture, clothes for children, and groceries – with a wider aim to improve opportunities for children in later life.  

Natalie Perry, sales and marketing director for Barratt Kent, said: “No child should be missing out on opportunities and things most take for granted, and it is through the persistent efforts of charities like Friends for Families who stand as a pillar of support for all. One of our principles is building strong community relationships, and as a business whose Head Office is in Sundridge, Kent, we are so honoured to support a local charity who is making all the difference within the community.” 

Claire Davison, from Friends for Families, added: “Our mission is to support disadvantaged local families and to give their children a chance to thrive. We work with organisations and individuals within the local community to ensure that families know that they matter to their neighbours: isolation is so often a feature of poverty, and we want the children and their parents to know that the community cares about them. 

“We are so grateful for Barratt Kent’s support: the help of local organisations makes a huge difference to our ability to provide this vital support for families in need. If anyone would like to know more about our work do please visit our website www.friendsforfamilies.org and contact us if you’d like to support us.” 

The donation to Friends for Families charity was made as part of The Barratt Foundation’s Community Fund initiative, which sees the housebuilder donate £1,500 each month to a local charity to improve the quality of life for those living in the local area.
