The Health-on-Line CSR Programme

As one of the largest employers in Bournemouth, we’re dedicated to investing back into our local community as well as supporting charities, through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. Over the last five years, we’ve donated more than £50,000 to our nominated charities which are chosen by our staff each year. From volunteering our time, to holding various fundraising activities throughout the year, we're proud of the impact our efforts are making on both a local and national scale.

Our work within the community is very close to our hearts here at Health-on-Line which is why we have a charity panel made up of our staff dedicated to ensuring that various fundraising and volunteering activities take place throughout the year.

The aim of our Charity Panel at Health-on-Line is to raise money, both internally and externally, through creative fundraising ideas. We realise the value of not only supporting our chosen charities and community as a company, but also the importance that charities are to our employees. That’s why we also have a fund available to support our employees own fundraising efforts outside of work, such as Tough Mudder and Bournemouth Bay Run.

Our Chosen Charities in 2020

For the second year running our staff have chosen to pledge their support to Dorset Children’s Foundation and a charity who we supported previously, Hope for Food.

With events like the Bournemouth Bay Run and the infamous Health-on-Line Charity Football Tournament; we’re hopeful that we will be able to support both of these charities very generously throughout 2020 and beat last year’s record-breaking target.

Hope for Food

Hope for Food’s mission is to assist men, women and children in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas, who are either homeless or living in poverty, by providing fresh food at their soup kitchens, food hampers, clothing, bedding and household goods.

Set up and run entirely by volunteers, 52 weeks of the year, the organisation was founded in 2012 and continues to provide life’s basic essentials on a day-to-day basis to people in need of help.

At the start of the year we joined forces in helping to provide food for their Bournemouth soup kitchen. Read more about what we did to help Bournemouth's homeless.

Dorset Children's Foundation

The Dorset Children’s Foundation was set up in 2013 to support local sick and disabled children by funding medical expenses, mobility equipment and therapies not covered by the NHS. They not only raise vital funds but offer a support network to families, connecting parents in similar situations.

The charity seeks to improve the quality of life for children so that they can gain better movement, overcome isolation, improve their self-esteem and play a larger part in the society around them, be that family or school.
