VANRATH are proud to be working with the Northern Ireland Children Hospice as a founder member of the Time to Care initiative.

Time to Care is a unique partnership opportunity for up to 30 businesses in Northern Ireland to fund the cost of a qualified Children’s Nurse for a year. VANRATH are delighted to have been the first company to support Time to Care and are delighted to have funded the salary of Senior Staff Nurse Karen McKee since March 2014.

Speaking about the initiative, Wayne Sullivan, Founder and Director of VANRATH said:

“There is increasing evidence of the positive impact of corporate-charity partnerships and the economic imperative for businesses and charities to secure more from less. As the leader in the professional recruitment sector in Northern Ireland, we take our corporate social responsibility seriously – rather than simply writing a one-off cheque we saw an opportunity with the Children’s Hospice to build an on-going partnership which will deliver tangible benefits to the children who need it most within our own community.”

“We’ve been delighted to welcome Karen already to our offices in Belfast, where her experience and knowledge really brought it home to the staff why the Children’s Hospice is a lifeline to so many children and families locally.”

“We hope our collaboration with the Children’s Hospice will not only give them much needed support, but also inspire other businesses to support in the long term and make a real difference in helping them deliver their vital work.”
