At their latest meeting, trustees agreed to extend their long-term partnership for another three years – making All Together NOW! the Foundation’s longest ever supported charity.
Mr Steve Morgan, founder and chairman of the Morgan Foundation, said: “We are delighted with the huge progress All Together NOW! has made, and the impact it is having within the community.
“Information is vital for all of us to get on with our lives – and something most of us take for granted.
“But if you are affected by disability or long-term health finding specific news and information about health, holidays, education, welfare, and recreation is far from easy.
“That’s why All Together NOW! is so vital role within the community, and we are extremely proud to be involved in its development.
“We know from the number of enquiries we receive from people who have read the newspaper version All Together NOW! that distribution is on the increase and that it is reaching the right audience.
“It is an excellent medium for us to get our message out and we look forward to another exciting three years.”
The Morgan Foundation has supported All Together NOW! since 2006.
Last year the Foundation provided the charity with a brand new delivery vehicle to get more papers across the region.
More than 100,000 copies of the bi-monthly newspaper are now being distributed to about 500 venues across the North West – with 90% of papers picked up at supermarkets and health centres.
The paper’s founder and editor Tom Dowling said: “This is just the boost we needed, and we are so very grateful. We are filling a vital role, a role that is so often overlooked, and we need all the help we can get.
“Without the support we get from the Morgan Foundation and our other few partners we just would not be around to help and inform the huge numbers of people affected by disability and long-term health conditions.”
