JP Corry are partnering up with The Simon Community

JP Corry is pleased to announce their corporate charity partnership with The Simon Community, Northern Irelands leading homeless charity who work without judgement to support individuals and families who are experiencing, or are at risk of homelessness.
The decision to partner with The Simon Community, was in easy one through the shared value that everyone deserves a safe place to call home. From having a place to call home brings the ability to build better physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Also stating the obvious as a provider of building materials, supporting the Simon Community aligns with our fundamental operations of building, repairing and renovating people’s homes and other spaces where individuals spend a substantial amount of time.
JP Corry has been committed for many years to doing the right thing and making a difference to individuals, families and communities across the provenance and Isle of Man. In recent years JP Corry has supported local mental health charities, in an effort to raise awareness and remove the ‘taboo’ of mental health especially amongst men. Increasing the focus of taking care of your overall wellbeing has played a part in this and efforts of which still continue to day.
Ciaran McConnell, Managing Director at JP Corry said “We are thrilled to be announcing our partnership with The Simon Community. Their work within our society is invaluable and sadly an essential lifeline for far too many. Through our donation of time, resources, and building knowledge we can support the Simon Community to enable their funding to stretch further in improving the lives of those facing some of life’s harshest struggles which is resulting in them facing homelessness. That is a great motivation to us to help raise awareness and offer our support.”
Joanne McCallister, Head of Income Generation said; “We are delighted that JP Corry is partnering with us to support those who are experiencing homelessness in NI. The last year has been really challenging for our organisation and unfortunately the pandemic has caused a further growth in demand for our services, so to have a company who has such a strong sense of corporate social responsibility come on board is a real boost.
We, at Simon Community, look forward to working together with the staff of JP Corry through our volunteering and fundraising initiatives and also utilising their skills across our accommodation services.”
