Charity Partnerships

Working closely with causes close to the hearts of our people.

Through our charity partnerships we deepen our support for the causes our people care about.

Our diversity is our strength, yet still, many causes unite us. In an ever-changing world, mental health and supporting those in need – at work, at home, and in our communities – is more important than ever. In each of The Ardonagh Group’s major regions, we work closely with a national mental health charity to champion positive wellbeing.

ACT, together with our people, has rallied behind these causes that seek to support anyone who is struggling to cope or just needs someone to listen without judgement or pressure.

Our work with Samaritans

Since 2021, in the UK and Ireland, ACT has partnered with Samaritans, who aim to end suicide and provide a listening ear to anyone when they need it most.

We have already raised more than £100,000 towards their services and aim to reach £150,000 by the end of 2023.

Our spotlight cause

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, life changes for the whole family. Based in Ireland, Cancer Fund for Children provides therapeutic services and family breaks, with the aim that no child has to face cancer alone.

As our spotlight cause, ACT, Ardonagh and our Arachas colleagues have helped contribute to the €2 million raised to help build a second respite centre in County Mayo.

Following the success of his first Miles 2 Mayo walk, an epic 180-mile journey from County Down to the site of the new centre, ACT Trustee Rory Best has plans to raise further funds so even more families have the opportunity to spend quality time together.
