The Sherbet Foundation continues to bring aid to those in
past year has seen the Sherbet Foundation, Shergroup's charity
for helping those families affected by enforcement action,
continue its good work. At the most recent Sherbet Foundation
board meeting (held in October 2011) three awards were granted,
and as a result of those approvals, items ranging from new
cookers to supplies of surgical dressings have been provided
by the charity to families that our officers found when they
called on them to be suffering from extreme levels of poverty.
Speaking about these awards Claire Sandbrook, Shergroup CEO
and a Sherbet Foundation trustee, said:
these awards, I wish to place on record how very proud I am
of the officers who made recommendations for help to the Sherbet
Foundation based upon what they found when they encountered
some very vulnerable people they met in the course of their
To them I say 'thank you' for making an effort to identify
this vulnerability, complete the necessary forms and send
these to the Trustees for evaluation. As a result of their
efforts the trustees were able to grant awards that will make
a real difference to some genuinely well-deserving cases.
Confidence in the idea of the Sherbet charity continues to
grow as a result of their efforts and indeed the efforts of
all our officers. As a result of this growing level of confidence,
the trustees are in talks with more strategic partners, to
whom we will look to demonstrate how enforcement officers
can show a more caring side to their role when faced with
a debtor who is suffering some form of hardship."
The Sherbet Foundation continues to develop and this coming
year will see us launch a facility whereby people can donate
money directly to Sherbet on-line.
We are always open to approaches from any charities or donors
who wish to help Sherbet in its work of assisting families
