It has been announced today, wednesday 14th September, that local charity Anode is to close down next month.
Posting on social media, Paignton based charity Anode said in a statement:
“For over 10 years Anode Connect has pioneered a number of innovative projects in supporting families and individuals in Torbay and the South Devon area. We are immensely proud of the difference we have made to 1000’s of people’s lives suffering from financial and social exclusion. Due to a range of factors including budget cuts from statutory bodies and other partnering agencies it is no longer possible to fund the work of the charity and we will be closing on the 13th October 2017,
“We celebrate the last decade, where we have received over 40,000 referrals and been honoured to work alongside vulnerable people and see their negative situations turned into positive outcomes,”
Nigel WIlliams, Anode’s founding Director said: “I would like to thank every staff member, trustee, volunteer and partner who has made the last 10 years such a success. We believe where we have offered a hand of friendship, compassion and assistance it has resulted in HOPE being restored. It is during this period we have seen 1000’s of people engaging in community action and believe a legacy for the future has been established.”
