IQPC is a people-centric business and realises it has a responsibility to contribute to the society in which it resides. The people we employ share the values of giving back to the community and readily embrace the work associated with our adopted charity.
When determining our approach to CSR activities in 2014, rather than work in multiple areas, IQPC wanted to work with a single charity and pledge support in an area which is often overlooked. One of the core values of IQPC is to"do the right thing", and we were looking to do that with our adopted charity.
The Assisi Hospice provides compassionate, personalised and quality palliative care to adults and children with life-limiting illnesses through their Inpatient, Home and Day Care services.The core values of the Hospice resonated with IQPC in terms of their approach to the care and support they provide: Service, Reverence for Life, Humility, Joyfulness and Stewardship.
Working directly with the charity, IQPC staff regularly organise entertainment for patients, as well as conduct fund-raising activities and events. This is embedded in what we do every day, making a positive impact and helping to minimise the negative impact.
