Our work with charities...

“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give”
Winston Churchill

Corporate responsibility, social accounting, being a part of the community…here at Cintra, helping others is a part of our culture.  We actively encourage the enthusiasm, passion  and skills of our people and their desire to make a positive impact.  And what is more we have a lot of fun in doing so!  Whether cycling the Coast to Coast, running the Great North Run, bake days, raffles, taking part in fun runs or the extreme challenge of 10 marathons in 10 months, everyone contributes to our fund raising activities!

As an organization we commit to:

  • Ensuring that 0.7% of our turnover is dedicated to the benefit of others through either direct financial support or support in kind, as recommended in UN Millennium Project;
  • All staff will be actively encouraged to participate in fundraising or charitable activities;
  • Line managers will offer support and guidance to any member of staff who puts forward a charity they wish to support;
  • For any individual wishing to participate in a fundraising activity which has an entry fee, Cintra will carry the cost of this, providing that individual can enlist the support of a minimum of four colleagues;
  • Cintra will match any funds raised by an individual in their fund- raising efforts.

Back to About Us

Cintra really are a shining example of corporate responsibility in action. They have been loyal supporters of COCO for many years and we are tremendously grateful for their enthusiastic and unwavering commitment to helping others. This dedication is evident throughout the business: The whole company really cares and is always first in line to support our fundraising initiatives, no matter how challenging they are! Not only that but Cintra go the extra mile, through their network, to help us spread the word about COCO’s projects. Their support is invaluable and many of COCO projects wouldn’t be where they are today without Cintra’s help. COCO is proud to be associated with Cintra HR & Payroll Services.
