Together thanks Beyond Group for donation of unclaimed residual funds
Posted on 16, December 2020
Together for Mental Wellbeing are hugely grateful to Beyond Group after it chose to begin a partnership with us to donate unclaimed residual funds.
Unclaimed client account balances are sums of money which lie dormant in the client account of many firms of solicitors, often untouched for years. It may be that the rightful owner cannot be traced, or perhaps they will not provide instructions on how the funds should be dealt with.
Linda Bryant, CEO at Together, said:
“We really appreciate Beyond Group choosing Together for the donation of unclaimed funds from their organisation. The money will help us continue delivering our services around England in the form of accommodation, community support, advocacy and support in criminal justice settings. We believe people experiencing mental distress have the right and the abilities to lead independent, fulfilling lives as part of their communities and these funds will help us to continue supporting them to do that.”
