Information
A couple of other bits of information help understand how the Brett Foundation works.
  • Where appropriate, the above has been carried out by professional people donating their time, such as the legal advice and finance.

  • We have acted as the go-between in the donation of a lot of the other items.

  • Rent deposits and arrears have been paid from donations directly to the Landlords - from charity volunteers wanting to help those particular people.

  • The fuel advice was provided by National Energy, and the allowance was donated by a volunteer who felt she needed her allowance less than other people.

  • The tree was cut down by a professional tree person
