Corporate, fund and private wealth specialist, Carey, has appointed the Teenage Cancer Trust Guernsey Appeal and the Guernsey Disability Alliance as its charities of the year as part of the company’s new CSR programme.
Each year Carey will nominate two Guernsey registered charities to benefit from funding and from time committed by employees, either through giving hands on practical support or by offering time and personal skills or experience. The business of 60 people will be committing up to 20 days of volunteer time each year to the island community.
Human Resources Manager Hayley Bradshaw, who is also chairman of the company’s CSR committee, explained the process surrounding this year’s nominations.
“Carey’s CSR approach involves developing open and creative partnerships with those causes that support life limiting or debilitating conditions. Each year our employees nominate causes that are close to their hearts and our committee selects the final two charities. From there we work together to identify the right blend of funding and volunteering.
“We are now developing plans with both The Guernsey Disability Alliance and the Teenage Cancer Trust for how our people and funding can make a difference to the fantastic work both organisations do here in Guernsey.”
