Charity Begins At Home

Chiesi Limited are proud to have their Head Office based in the North West and as such believes it is incredibly important to support those living within the community who are vulnerable or suffering.

Supporting charities close to home
Since 2014 the company has pledged to support numerous nominated charities; in particular The Booth Centre, a homeless charity in Manchester City Centre, and The Greggs Foundation Trust.

The Booth Centre, founded in 1995, is a community centre run with and for people affected by homelessness. It provides a warm welcome, an opportunity to belong, to gain a purpose and to rebuild lives. It offers a programme that includes activities such as volunteering, creative projects and sports, as well as training and help to gain employment. It also supports people to improve health and wellbeing, to access emergency accommodation, and to secure and maintain a permanent home.1

Chiesi is delighted that it has been able to (and continues to) support The Booth Centre with its activities;2

  • 36,400 nutritious meals served to visitors to the centre
  • 271 people helped into supported accommodation
  • 104 people assisted to gain employment

Based in Newcastle upon Tyne and closely associated with Greggs plc., The Greggs Foundation Trust is a grant making charity which improves the quality of life in local communities, distributing around £3 million per year to charitable organisations throughout England, Scotland and Wales. The charity aims to make a difference through the provision of five main grant programmes, all of which share the common goal of improving the quality of life of people in local communities.

Chiesi is proud to support THE GREGGS BREAKFAST CLUB PROGRAMME which was set up in 1999 and has since provided nutritious breakfasts to over 50 million schoolchildren in disadvantaged areas. The programme currently provides breakfast to 31,500 children across the UK every school day and is proven to make a huge difference to pupils’ attendance levels, behaviour and learning.3
