Caerphilly Keys team unites to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease charity

Members of the team behind Caerphilly Keys, a pioneering private sector leasing scheme, have joined forces to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Eight members from across the Caerphilly Keys team, including officers and landlords, will be taking part in this year’s Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k.  The team has selected the Motor Neurone Disease Association as its chosen charity following one of the scheme’s first landlords being recently diagnosed with the condition.

The initiative is led by the Housing Solutions team at Caerphilly County Borough Council and is the first of its kind in Wales.  Caerphilly Keys prevents homelessness by matching tenants to suitable private rental properties, then working to support both the tenant and landlord to ensure the tenancy is sustained.

Taking part in the race are Caerphilly Council staff staff Byron Jones, Liam Roberts, David Francis and Hannah Williams, Caerphilly Keys landlords Craig Coombes and Tom Collins, along with Charlotte Burles Corbett and Ruth Powell who are representing Caerphilly Private Landlord Forum.
