Stafford and Rural Homes has a rich history of raising funds for worthy local causes and in 2018 has established its own C.A.R.E.S Foundation. The C.A.R.E.S Foundation was formed to support projects and groups in and around the Stafford Borough that help some of the most vulnerable in the community including those who are affected by Homelessness, social isolation or severe hardship. The SARH C.A.R.E.S Foundation welcomes bids from community projects and groups for up to £500 through the application form below. The donation is not automatically granted and will go through a process before being awarded, this is detailed below. If you have any further enquiries please email email@example.com.
