NVT Group, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility activities, is proud to be able to support several local charities.
This year we are extremely pleased to be able to support The Saturday Café in Cathcart. In September, Irene Simmons (PA to NVT Group Directors) and Graham Stevenson (NVT Group Marketing Manager) were delighted to present a cheque to the cafe for £3,750 by way of a donation to help with the work the café does in the local area.
The Saturday Café Club’s main purpose is to provide short break recreation activities which promote social integration, health and wellbeing. The club aims to make a positive impact on the lives of disabled children and young people and assists in identifying individual strategies to overcome the barriers to social inclusion faced by children/young people and their families/care groups. Each young person is supported and encouraged by creating opportunities to integrate, play and develop in an environment of respect and promotion of positive behaviours. The clubs operate over three sessions, Saturday and Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evening. Each club provides hours of activities designed to make a positive impact on the lives of children/young people.
A secondary, but equally important purpose is to provide short breaks from caring for the families and care groups of the children/young people attending the clubs to enable families/care providers to engage in other activities with confidence that their child/young person is in a positive, safe and fun environment.
