Our Community Involvement
Our business has an impact on the communities we work in. It's our responsibility to give something back. This year we are proudly supporting Barnardos.
Barnardos want to make Ireland the best place in the world for a child.
And we want to help them.
We choose our charity partners by asking employees who they'd like to support and organise fund raising activities throughout the year to support our selected charity.
Barnardos will benefit from our combined fundraising efforts this year.
Barnardos is a children's charity. They work with vulnerable children and their families in Ireland and campaign for the rights of all children.
About the Teen parent programme
The funds we’ll raise over the coming months will go towards Barnardos Teen parent programme. This focuses on working closely with teenage parents and their children to promote and nurture their educational, emotional and social well-being.
January - May 2015
We baked, we sang, we cycled … and managed to raise over €45,000 in the process so far!
These much needed funds will be used to:
- Provide educational materials for teen parents to encourage them to remain in school
- Fund a course to enable a teen parent to return to education
- Provide support to teen parents and their children including help with budgeting and parenting skills
This is a great achievement but we're not stopping here.
Thank you to all our employees and advisers for donating time and money so generously – stay tuned for updates on progress!
We've been supporting the community through a number of initiatives since 1998. We also contribute to the community by donating in kind.
Involving our people in community investment is important to us.
It gives us the opportunity to share skills and knowledge – and it also helps us develop new skills. That is why our volunteering policy provides paid time off to for staff to continue their valuable work in their own communities.
Every year, our Inspiration Awards celebrate individuals and teams whose achievements make a difference in their communities.
