VANRATH have proudly supported the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice since 2014 and are founding members of the 'Time To Care' initiative.

​We recognise the importance of social responsibility and giving back which is why we continue to support the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice through internal fundraisers, charity events and unique initiatives. At the beginning of our partnership, VANRATH became the founding members of the 'Time to Care' programme which funds the salary of a Senior Staff Nurse and creates the opportunity for up to 30 businesses in Northern Ireland to show their support.

"As the leader in the professional recruitment sector in Northern Ireland, we take our corporate social responsibility seriously - we saw an opportunity with the Children's Hospice to build a strong, on-going partnership, which delivers tangible benefits to the children who need it most within our own community.

"We've been delighted to welcome one of the nurses to our offices in Belfast, where her experience and knowledge really resonated with our staff, and helped us understand the ways in which the Northern Ireland 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 then in this initiative, to help contribute in a real way to enable them to deliver their vital services."​
