Charity and business come together

11/05/2018

We have joined forces with Welsh charity Kidney Wales in an exciting new partnership.

We're helping the charity to support a number of athletes competing in September’s British Transplant Games in Birmingham and again next year when they are held in Newport.

At the same time, Kidney Wales is helping us to promote its Priority Service Register for customers and has provided specialist training workshops on how to help those affected by kidney disease for our contact centre staff.

The priority service register, which is free and confidential, supports people who may be particularly vulnerable during a power cut. It includes those who are medically dependent on electricity, who have a particular communication need or who may just find a power cut particularly traumatic, like some people living with kidney disease.

Sian Evans, Development Manager for Kidney Wales, said: “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with WPD. Alliances like this help us to provide much needed funds to support patients and their families. We are very grateful to our supporters and partners for helping us raise awareness of this lifelong chronic condition.”

WPD Corporate Communication Officer Karen Welch, said: “Kidney Wales does some fantastic work and we are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with them, knowing that our support will help bolster their vital services.”
