Davy Group and our employees are focusing our charitable giving, engagement and volunteering in areas that Davy and its employees are concerned about:

The specific charities that Davy will partner in 2015 are:
UCD Access Scholarships
Access scholarships are intended to facilitate access to a university education, introducing supports and policies to ensure that those who have the most barriers to overcome are helped in accessing and completing their education.
A Collaborative Initiative Amongst Homelessness Charities
Homelessness strips people of dignity, independence and autonomy. Today homelessness is no longer viewed solely as a housing problem. Research shows that poor access to employment, training and lack of educational qualifications contribute to people’s risk of homelessness. Dublin Simon, Focus Ireland, Peter McVerry Trust and the Ready for Work Programme have to come together to tackle these issues of homelessness.
Soar is a collective movement which believes that there is greatness within all young people. Soar act on this by creating and delivering early intervention-preventative wellness workshops inside and outside of the school system for young people aged 12 to 18 years from all backgrounds. Soar programs begin by developing an awareness of what influences us and stops us all from being free to be who we want to be. www.soar.ie
Over 250,000 children go to sleep each night on the streets and in the slums of Kolkata hungry without shelter or protection. HOPE was established in 1999 by Irish humanitarian, Maureen Forrest, to improve the lives of these children. Since its establishment, HOPE has grown from just one girls protection home to an extended network of projects covering primary healthcare, education centres and life skills training projects. www.hopefoundation.ie
