Making an impact in the community

Yorkshire and the North East embark on new charity partnerships

In 2015 Deloitte in Yorkshire and the North East selected new local office charity partnerships through employee nomination and subsequent staff voting. These charities are the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, selected by the Leeds office and St Oswald's Hospice voted for by the Newcastle office.

We believe that everything we do, as individuals and as a firm, has an impact.

Whether helping clients to transition to new technology platforms, shaping international strategies for high growth firms or donating time and expertise to a local charity, we want to make a real and lasting difference.

Each financial year our local offices enter nominations and vote for a local charity to support as part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance

It may surprise you to know that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire.

In fact as a Charity they only receive help through secondment of paramedics from the NHS, through Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.  

To keep both of Yorkshire's air ambulances in the air they need to raise £12,000 per day. This is equivalent to £4.4 million per year. As a rapid response air emergency service the Charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres. The two Air Ambulances operate from The Nostell Priory Estate near Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk, and together both Air Ambulances cover the whole of the region. 

St Oswald's Hopice 

St Oswald’s Hospice provides specialist care for North East adults, young people and children with life limiting conditions. To enable the hospice to run this service, £7 million must be raised each year through voluntary giving. No charge is made for the services provided ensuring hospice care is available to all.

We believe that everything we do, as individuals and as a firm, has an impact.
