Exertis is proud of our long history of community involvement both in our fundraising charity work and our employees volunteering their time.
Spotlight on the UK and Ireland
Across the Exertis Group, our subsidiaries are involved in activities to support local communities and charities. Moreover our employees are involved in fundraising and giving their time and effort to supporting local campaigns.
In the UK, Exertis has supported a variety of charities, working with partners to help those less fortunate.
In 2016, Exertis will be helping The Sabre Trust, an educational based charity, build a Centre of Excellence Kindergarten in Ghana. We have recently donated £60,000 to the build as well as a range of Dell notebooks and tablets.
Classrooms in Ghana are chronically under resourced and it is not unusual to see a single textbook shared by an entire class. Many children have no access to writing materials of any kind and learning can often seem like an uphill battle.
Exertis is working with Sabre, a charity involved in programmes to ensure that every child has their own workbook and classrooms are equipped with culturally appropriate learning materials. We want to help facilitate a better learning environment.

Exertis Inner City Helping Homeless Shoebox Appeal
In December 2016, Exertis Ireland employees made up charity shoe boxes, filled with warm clothes and festive treats, to be given to homeless men, women, boys and girls in Ireland’s inner cities. This was in support of the Inner City Helping Homeless Shoebox Appeal which is well timed for Christmas 2016.
Bury Children's Hospice Donation
In 2015, we supported Bury Children's Hospice Grace's Place with a donation of £16,000, paying towards medical supplies and equipping them with games consoles.
Grace's Place is a specialist hospice for children suffering from cancers, neurological illnesses, genetic illness and physical disabilities in North Manchester. The hospice's mission is to create a beautiful, peaceful, safe environment for families with children who have life-threatening or terminal illness.
