The Engage Charity Health Fund was founded as part of our shared value model and commitment to supporting society through our work.
The fund is designed to provide free healthcare to the employees of small charities and ensure they can access treatment for everyday healthcare costs.
These include but are not limited to:
Employee health and wellbeing perks are commonplace in private business and have become a big area of focus in recent years as recognition of its mutual benefit increases. So we wanted to bring some of the benefits enjoyed by employees in the private sector, to those working for small charities.
CTHFC was founded in January 2016 as an 11-a-side team with the aim of raising much-needed funds and awareness for the only children’s hospice in Sussex. The team play matches against other charities and local businesses. It even competes in an annual game against a celebrity side, which is always a fantastic day!
Nick Hale is one of the founding players of the team and has remained an active member, supporting events on and off the pitch. As of April 2018, the team have raised in excess of £60,000 with every penny going to the cause.
In January 2018, the team were thrilled to secure the services of Brighton & Hove Albion captain Bruno Saltor as Ambassador for CTHFC, which demonstrates how highly the charity is regarded and is also a mark of how far the team have come in a short space of time.
