At Paycare, we’re celebrating the start of an initiative which has seen us reach out and support a fantastic local charity by offering use of our unoccupied office space.

Following a recent re-organisation at our Head Office, we’re thrilled to have welcomed The Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia Support Project to our building, with the charity’s team taking on the first floor at Paycare House as the base for their operations.

The Support Project team was originally based in St John’s Square in Wolverhampton, but with the lease on their building due to expire, they approached us to ask whether we had any available space they could occupy so they could relocate, and we of course offered to help.

The Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia Support Project promotes public and professional awareness of the inherited blood disorders affecting haemoglobin, the oxygen carrying substance in the red blood cells. Its team of nine operates as a vital health provider in Wolverhampton offering services which include counselling, support, screening, training and awareness raising activities.

Sutinder Herian, Project Co-ordinator at the Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Support Project said: “We’re extremely grateful to Kevin Rogers, CEO at Paycare and the rest of the team for their generosity, by providing us with the space to be able to continue our important work with the local affected communities.

“Kevin and the whole of the Paycare team have been extremely accommodating and have made the arduous task of moving offices much more manageable.”

Kevin Rogers, CEO of Paycare, explained: “We’re delighted to be able to support The Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia Support Project by providing space for them to operate from, so they can continue to carry out the vital work that they do to promote public and professional awareness of Sickle Cell and related blood disorders. We’re passionate about supporting charities as part of our commitment to our local community.”
