As part of its global sustainable development policy and in a significant move towards corporate social responsibility, Planisware, a leading project portfolio management software provider, is proud to announce its chosen charity for 2024.
Each year, Planisware UK selects a ‘chosen charity’ with the aim to make a difference in the local community. This year, Planisware has chosen the oldest homelessness charity in Manchester, Lifeshare.
Lifeshare is a voluntary organisation established to help meet the needs of homeless and vulnerable people in Manchester and Salford. The first point of contact is with people on the streets, offering practical assistance, support, and information. Lifeshare offer continued assistance that enables people to secure suitable accommodation, support them in maintaining their tenancies, and help them to access initiatives that carry their lives forward. The charity continues their mission to identify street homelessness in the city, distribute resources, and promote a healthier life for vulnerable people. Planisware employees will actively participate in supporting Lifeshare by attending volunteer days and donating essential items such as sleeping bags and hand warmers. Also, raising awareness of the digital inclusion project which focuses on donating refurbished goods such as mobile phones so that service users can attend appointments, communicate for a job interview, and have to access advice and information online.
Abby, Digital & Marketing Manager at Lifeshare, says: “2024 marks Lifeshare's 40th year of operations and demand is higher than ever. Partnerships with caring businesses in our community help to continue the operations of our vital support which included 15,000+ hot meals in 2023.”
Planisware's collaboration with Lifeshare marks a significant step towards creating a positive and lasting impact on the community in Manchester. Through a shared commitment to social responsibility, the partnership aims to contribute to the betterment of the lives of those in need. As 2024 unfolds, Planisware looks forward to making a meaningful difference in the local community, demonstrating that businesses can be a force for positive change.
