2021 Community Partnership: YMCA Derbyshire

Posted 13.01.2021

This year, we are proud to be partnering with YMCA Derbyshire. YMCA Derbyshire provides accommodation and support for young and vulnerable people who temporarily find themselves without a place to live, as well as accredited training and education for 16-18-year olds.

In addition to our ongoing support of Tanzanian-based charity Pamoja Leo, every year Rhodes Wealth Management selects a partner charity, and given the challenging year that was 2020, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, it was more necessary than ever to support local causes.

In 2020 team members Nina Blurton and Rosie Cartwright participated in the ‘Sleep Easy’, organised by the YMCA Derbyshire. Funds raised enabled the charity to expand their accommodation and employ additional Health and Wellbeing workers.

YMCA Derbyshire Marketing Manager Catherine White shares her thoughts on the new local partnership, ‘we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to partner with Rhodes Wealth Management. YMCA Derbyshire centres around developing people and we know that the team at Rhodes share the same values. The difference that will be made to our young people’s lives through this partnership will be huge and we can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store.’

We are excited to be partnering with such a fantastic cause so close to home and we look forward to collaborating with the YMCA Derbyshire throughout 2021.
