Deloitte partners with charity Simon Community NI

  • Deloitte has announced a new partnership with charity Simon Community NI as part of 13 new charity partnerships being launched in June.

    As part of Deloitte's One Million Futures initiative, the firm is aiming to ramp up its social impact through strategic partnerships  with more charities than ever before. Next month will see the launch of 13 new charity partnerships, including support for Simon Community NI in Belfast.

    Simon Community NI is one of Northern Ireland's largest charities dedicated to tackling homelessness in the region, helping over 3000 people every year throughout Northern Ireland. It provides a range of support to help prevent those at risk of being made homeless from ending up on the streets and provide accomodation services for those that do, but it also provides health and well-being support.

    The charity manages 22 separate projects with its 300 staff and 50 volunteers, but resources stretch pretty thin for any charity and homelessness is on the rise in Belfast. This partership with Deloitte will help support the charity's current operations throughout 2019, and comes as part of the firm's five-year One Million Futures programme that aims to help over a million people get to where they want to be through access to education and employment.

    "The support of corporate partnerships is more important than ever," explained Simon Community NI's Chief Executive Jim Dennison, adding, "We are glad that Deloitte have recognised the difference our charity makes across Northern Ireland and decided to select us as part of their One Million Futures initiative. With big plans for 2019 and beyond, Simon Community look forward to the many ways in which the team at Deloitte can help us make a bigger impact to the lives of some of the most vulnerable in our society."
