“Making one person smile can change the world – maybe not the whole world, but their world.”
Calderdale SmartMove was established in 1998 as a registered charity and provides crucial housing support for homeless and vulnerably housed individuals and families in Calderdale.
Their service includes: a bond scheme, providing start-up essentials such as food, clothing and cleaning materials and providing 1-to-1 support to help clients maintain their tenancy. Alongside this, SmartMove helps to tackle physical and mental health issues as well as providing education and support.
Since 2010, our MD Judith Wright has been volunteering for Calderdale SmartMove and in turn, has held the role of Chair for the Board of Trustees for the last 8 years. When asked why, Judith replied, “I like to spend some of my time supporting and trying to make a difference to others so I volunteer for Calderdale SmartMove. Their staff and volunteers do an incredible job and make a real difference to many people’s lives.”
Judith and the WAM team get involved where possible with fundraising events including the annual #SleepOut (2016 & 2017).
Naturally, we also provide marketing and design support to the charity. Most recently, we’ve provided a brand makeover to coincide with their 20th Anniversary, incorporating a new website, a special edition logo and new graphics for fundraising events and social media covers. Behind the scenes, the WAM team has also been involved with data cleansing and management to comply with new GDPR regulations.
