Respect | Excellence | Leadership
At INNOVATE, we are committed to making a significant difference in the communities where we live and work. Our philosophy and company values extend beyond our business practices. Through volunteering efforts, educational initiatives, and charitable contributions, we actively support various causes.
Supporting Impactful Projects and Organisations
Supporting the local Sporting Community
INNOVATE was delighted to support the Rapparees Starlight Enniscorthy initiatives around Building Bellefield. Building Bellefield aims to establish a “Flagship Sports & Recreational Facility” in the heart of Enniscorthy, benefitting both members and the wider community. As part of our commitment, we contributed €500 to support this endeavour.
Little Jobs Service
Through the TÚS Programme, we actively participate in the Little Jobs Service. Little Jobs focuses on providing small maintenance, repairs, and gardening assistance to older and vulnerable members of our community, including those with disabilities, throughout County Wexford. We understand the importance of lending a helping hand to those who need it most, and we are proud to donate to the wellbeing of our community.
Cahore Inshore Rescue
We recognise the invaluable service provided by organisations like Cahore Inshore Rescue. Their dedication to saving lives aligns with our belief in making a difference. We wholeheartedly support their efforts and are grateful for the vital role they play in ensuring the safety of our community.
Prioritising Mental Health Services
Mental health is a crucial aspect of overall wellbeing. In December 2022 and December 2023, in lieu of Christmas gifts we made a charitable donation to Pieta House to support well-being and mental health challenges. By raising awareness and providing support, our intention is to make a positive impact on the mental wellbeing of people in our community.
Empowering People with Multiple Sclerosis
At INNOVATE, giving back is an integral part of our culture. In 2019, we chose to support MS Ireland, an organisation dedicated to providing support to people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in Ireland. Some members took a part in the Gaelforce Great Fjord Swim in Killary. Through various fundraising events and initiatives, we raised a total of €10,618, which helped provide vital support. Our commitment to MS Ireland reflects our dedication to making a difference in the lives of those who face unique challenges.
Supporting Children’s Wellbeing
Barnardos is a children’s charity that holds a special place in our hearts. We have been actively involved in fundraising efforts for Barnardos, including completing a skydive to raise vital funds. The team also participated in the HELL & BACK, Endurance Challenge in Killruddery Estate, Bray in September as part of their annual charity fundraising activities. Our commitment to supporting Barnardos and their mission to improve the lives of children continues, alongside our partnership with North Wexford Hospice. Together, we strive to create a better future for children and families in need.
Providing Compassionate Care
As part of our dedication to giving back, we enthusiastically sponsor events and initiatives in support of North Wexford Hospice, such as the Gorey Night Run held on March 2nd, 2017. It is a privilege for us to play a part in aiding North Wexford Hospice’s invaluable efforts to offer support and assistance to individuals facing challenging circumstances. Many of the INNOVATE Team also take part in this event each year.
Focus Ireland is an organisation dedicated to addressing homelessness in Ireland. We stand in solidarity with their ‘Shine A Light Night’ campaign, which aimed to raise awareness and funds to provide vital prevention services and change people’s lives. In support of their cause, on October 12th, 2018, Gavin O’Donovan, participated in a sleep-out event at INNOVATE Wexford Park to raise much-needed funds. We are inspired by the work of Focus Ireland and remain committed to supporting their mission to combat homelessness.
Inspiring Change through CoderDojo
We firmly believe in empowering the next generation and inspiring them to make a difference. Some of our team members volunteer in local chapters of CoderDojo, a worldwide movement of free programming clubs for young people. By providing mentorship and guidance, our goal is to nurture their passion for technology and encourage their entrepreneurial spirit.
Building Stronger, Vibrant Communities Together
At INNOVATE, we are dedicated to making a positive difference in the communities we serve. Through our support, we strive to create lasting change. Our dedication to creating positive change is an integral part of our company culture and drives us to continually seek out opportunities to give back to our community.
