We are delighted to announce that we have become a Derby County Community Trust Partner, showcasing our continued support of Derby County Community Trust. We have signed up alongside other members of the business community in the city to commit to supporting the invaluable work delivered by the community arm of the football club, encapsulating the Derby spirit.
Our first involvement with the Trust came through our support for the DCCT SCORE project, an employability programme to support young people into gaining employment in the Health and Social Care sector.
Our CEO, Graeme, has been instrumental in this programme by chairing the advisory board for SCORE and has this to say: “We are delighted to sign a contract to become a Derby County Community Trust Partner. At Pennine Healthcare our driving Purpose is to Protect Life and Enrich the Communities that we work in. Derby County Community Trust exist to improve lives and communities through sport, physical activity, health, and education which perfectly mirrors our own aspirations to make the world a better place through medical technology, sustainability, exceptional care and wellbeing.
“We cannot wait to kick off our collaborative programmes which involve sustainability and expanding career opportunities within the Health and Social Care sector.”
In addition to the support offered through the SCORE project, we are also committing to sponsorship opportunities.
Pete Collins, Business Development Manager for DCCT spoke of the partnership, “We are really pleased to be working with Pennine Healthcare on a Trust Partner partnership. They have shown a commitment to support our local communities and our values as organisations align perfectly. We are excited to develop the partnership further”.
We look forward to working closely with Derby County Community Trust over the coming months and are delighted to have signed up.
