Welcome bags and treats for tenants
Quo Vadis Trust (QVT) provides supported housing for people in South East London with mental health needs.
Their work has a powerful impact for the people they work with directly and the larger community. They are entirely reliant on charitable donations to provide activities and events.
During the pandemic, it became clear that vulnerable tenants were struggling more than ever with maintaining good mental health and dealing with the sense of fear and isolation. In response they have been delivering psychoeducational activities such as how to manage mental and physical health, budgeting, relationships, self-care and living skills, managing accommodation and addictions.
They use products from In Kind Direct in various ways:
- Welcome bags with toiletries and other essentials for each new client moving to QVT-supported accommodation.
- Essentials for activities and events throughout the year.
- For individual gifts for clients during Christmas of toiletries and sweet treats.
As Ingrid, CEO explains “Items from In Kind Direct go a long way in supporting us to offer welcome packs when clients move in and other goody bags for those in need of extra support. The toiletries and toilet paper help us to reduce costs which we would otherwise incur if we were to go to high street retailers.”
