Astra Security supports campaign to help disadvantaged children in Bristol

2019-07-09

Astra Security is proud to be supporting Unique Voice and it’s #HELP100 Campaign.  By making a donation,  1 child has been sponsored for a whole year.

Unique Voice is a Community Interest Company, which supports disadvantaged children across the Bristol area.  Their #HELP100 campaign is set out to enrich the lives of 100 children –These are the most deprived children from across the city. 


The main  focus for the campaign is to provide holiday programmes with the opportunity to have fun with friends, develop new skills, play in a safe environment, participate in stimulating activities, and above all enjoy the school holidays!

The summer holiday programme provides up to 6 weeks of programmes, in areas including Hartcliffe, Lawrence Weston, Easton and Withywood.  Unique Voice work with children who have had Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE).  These are children who have had their childhood interrupted in some way, such as:-
  • Suffered domestic abuse
  • Suffered sexual abuse
  • Children on a Child Protection Plan
  • Young Carers
  • Children affected by Mental Health
  • Siblings of children affected by any of the above
By taking part in the stimulating and creative activities, children are able to develop better communication and social skills and are given an opportunity to express themselves.  Having increased confidence and self-worth can help tackle low self-esteem, which often occurs in vulnerable young people.  Making new friends and having new experiences can really help broaden young people’s horizons, showing them that there are many different opportunities in life and many alternative paths they can follow.  

Astra Security have made a donation which will sponsor 1 child for a whole year.


Dan Ford, Community Development Manager said ‘ The support we have received from Astra is absolutely vital to how we operate at Unique Voice.  With Astra’s support, we are working and providing for the most disadvantaged children across our city, Bristol.  We are incredibly grateful to Paul and Sarah for their very generous donation to our #Help100 campaign.’

Paul Beet, Managing Director at Astra Security said ‘ It’s astonishing to learn about the numbers of deprived youngsters living across the city.  I’m pleased that Astra can help make a difference by supporting this valuable campaign. It’s an important part of our ethos to support communities in this way and it’s so vital for children to be given the opportunity to take part in a variety of creative and stimulating activities in a safe environment during the school holidays.  I hope the campaign is a great success and wish them well with their future fundraising.’
