Charities / Voluntary / Not for Profit Organisations
We’ve worked with charities, volunteers and not for profit organisations since day one. Our pragmatic advice, flexibility and experience in this sector keeps organisations safe and allows informed decisions to be made relating to health and safety expenditure.
“I will be more vigilant and prepared for first-aid scenarios at work now I have done this training (First Aid at Work). I feel enthusiastic about sharing this knowledge. This course has inspired me to pursue further training in First Aid. I hope my refresher courses are also with Acorn”
Why do charities / voluntary / not for profit organisations choose us?
When working with charities, voluntary and not for profit organisations we recognise that significant expenditure can sometimes impact on service delivery and wider organisational aims.
We also recognise the importance of ensuring the safety of your staff as well as your volunteers, who often give so much in support of their chosen charity, and the importance of ensuring they are appropriately managed and provided with training, information and instructions where required.
Whilst we’ll always keep you safe, our practical and pragmatic way of working means we’ll advise if something must be done, and equally if something need not be done, or exists only as guidance.
In fact, we can often suggest alternatives to reduce costs, which will help those with responsibilities for safety to make informed decisions.
Our portfolio of charities includes those running retail outlets, providing health and social care, education and working with children.
Where trustees and managers are seeking reassurance as to our capability and experience in this sector, we hold the following accreditations and memberships:
- ISO Accredited 9001:2008
- Qualsafe Awards registered Centre
- IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) licence holder
- SMAS – Worksafe Consultant as recognised by SSIP
This ensures our expertise in the provision of advice and the delivery of training courses in our specialist areas, such as health and safety, first aid, clinical healthcare, food safety, fire safety and manual handling is of the highest standard.
Upon request, and with their permission, we will gladly introduce any organisation considering using our services to others we have previously or continue to work with.
