YSS is delighted to be the recipient of a donation of high quality IT equipment, courtesy of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The equipment has become available as part of the ongoing investment in the service’s IT infrastructure and includes around 100 tablets. 

Chief Fire Officer Rod Hammerton said: “YSS is a fitting charity for us to support as we’ve close links with it through The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), John Campion and a shared interest making our communities safer and more sustainable.

“Donating these tablets will greatly benefit YSS in its work supporting people who are in, or at risk of being involved in, the criminal justice system across the West Mercia region.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service is also working with YSS on West Mercia PCC funded safer roads service, .   

Mr Hammerton also said: “The charity works with some of the most under-supported people in our society by helping them into work, training and education, often leading to improved mental health, so we are delighted to support YSS.”

Key support worker for YSS, Maria Williams said: “I’d like to thank Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service for these tablets as they will have a really positive impact at a grass roots level. We support people with finding their way to positive paths in life, giving them the best possible chances, both for the benefit of themselves and the wider community. These devices will help people with things like applying for jobs online, searching for training opportunities or helping with homework.”
