Together for Cardiff Emergency Fund launched for residents in need

A new emergency fund has been put in place to support Cardiff residents in crisis.

The Together for Cardiff Discretionary Emergency Fund has immediately received a £10,000 boost, thanks to the generosity of Cardiff-born international business leader, Alan Peterson, as the Council seeks to provide help to some of the most vulnerable people in need across the city, who are experiencing hardship.

The initiative is the Council's latest response to the impact the pandemic is continuing to have on communities across the city.

At the start of the crisis, the authority established a volunteering initiative, Together for Cardiff, to harness the community spirit and strong desire of residents to help each other in time of need. This was quickly followed by the creation of the Cardiff Food Appeal which saw local businesses and individuals, including Mr Peterson, donating funds totalling more than £100,000 that was used to buy the emergency food and essential goods parcels the Council has provided for people struggling to get provisions throughout the past year.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Huw Thomas, said: "The tremendous generosity shown by businesses and individuals in the city at the start of the emergency last year, both in terms of financial contributions to the food appeal and people selflessly giving their time to volunteer to support others in their time of need, was outstanding. People really pulled Together for Cardiff.

"This money, as well as goods that were donated by businesses and Cardiff Foodbank, was used to buy emergency food and essential goods parcels for almost 8,500 people struggling to get provisions throughout the past year.

"Sadly, the crisis and the difficulties it has brought are still with us and many low income households in the city continue to struggle so, this emergency fund has been established to support those in crisis.

"We are extremely grateful to The Peterson Family for their generous contribution once again, which has helped get the fund off the ground. We hope that others who want to help residents in difficulty will also come forward to, from some of the city's businesses to individuals in the community who want to support their neighbours.

"My thanks go to everyone who is able to help. Your support will provide a real lifeline to Cardiff people in need. Diolch yn fawr iawn."
