Within Lundbeck UK we have a Charity Committee and their role is to oversee all aspects of our charitable giving events, develop our volunteer programme and support our Charity Partners. Membership of the committee is a voluntary role and should not interfere or cause any conflict to the core role of the employee.
The committee comprises of a cross-section of employees from across the UK business and is represented by each of the business areas and field teams.
The Charity Committee will develop a calendar of fundraising activities for the year by;
The Charity Committee is also responsible for developing and supporting the volunteer programme with our Charity Partner and they advise and support employees who wish to undertake volunteer work for a local charity within their community.
All funds raised through the committee are donated to charity and Lundbeck UK employees do not benefit financially in any way from the activities of its charitable giving.
Lundbeck UK is committed to ‘giving’ back to our local communities, through charitable giving, both financially and by the giving of our time, as individuals and as a company.
As part of this we choose to support one Charity Partner each year to focus our activities.
Lundbeck UK will only support charitable giving if it falls outside of the scope of Lundbeck’s business areas and there is no conflict of interest. Our charity partner will not be a Health Care Organisation (HCO), Patient Organisation (PO), Religious Organisation (RO) or Political Organisation.
The charity chosen by Lundbeck UK employees to support in 2022 is Air Ambulances UK.
Air Ambulances UK is the national charity supporting the lifesaving work of the UK’s air ambulance charities, enabling them to save more lives every day.
The Air Ambulances UK vision is to provide the best possible chance of survival and patient outcome for everyone in need of lifesaving pre-hospital care. To achieve this aim, they provide vital national funding to air ambulance charities, increase the awareness of their lifesaving work, advocate on key issues and policies affecting the delivery of their services, help to enable advancements in patient care, provide a collective national voice and enable the exchange of information and knowledge across the air ambulance sector.
Air ambulance crews across the UK bring the Emergency Department to patients who have suffered life threatening or life changing trauma or medical emergency; providing advanced critical care to save lives.
In 2020 we chose to support the Joining Forces Project, supporting the Age UK Leicester Shire and Rutland project which was a joint initiative between Age UK and SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity. Veterans supported by Joining Forces have undergone many challenges within their military and personal lives. This may include loneliness, isolation, bereavement, mental health challenges or poor health, sometimes without family and support.
We continued this partnership throughout 2021 due to the increase seen in isolation and loneliness amongst elderly veterans during the COVID-19 pandemic. We provided financial support through fundraising events and volunteer support for the telephone befriending service.
Dedicated to improving access to treatments that support improved brain health.
We are patient-driven, courageous, ambitious, passionate and responsible
Our heritage and success have provided us with a strong global network.
