We believe that New Leaf Search should contribute positively to the community in which we operate and engage with charitable programmes in a number of ways.
We have a ‘Charity of the Year’ pledge whereby we commit a proportion of our turnover to a nominated charity. Charities are selected based upon a personal connection between an employee and a particular cause.
We are proud to be associated with the following charities:
2009: Cancer Journey
Registered Charity: 1121915
The charity’s aim is to ensure that all people affected by cancer can find the information that they need, at the time that they need it, and in the format that suits them. Their database contains details of hundreds of organisations offering support and advice on all aspects of living with cancer so sufferers can be sure to find the help they need. The Patron of Cancer Journey is Andy Ripley, former England rugby international, and himself a prostate cancer patient.
2008: SILA – The Sarcoidosis Charity
Registered Charity: 1063986
Sarcoidosis is an immune system disorder that results from a specific type of inflammation of body tissue. It causes heightened immunity, which means that a person’s immune system, which normally protects the body from infection and disease, overreacts, resulting in damage to the body’s own tissues. It can appear in almost any body organ, but the most commonly affected areas are the lungs. One area alone may be affected, or many at once. As the ability of affected organs deteriorate, symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, cough, joint pains, tiredness and general malaise prevail. SILA is acutely aware of the general lack of knowledge concerning Sarcoidosis and aims to communicate the latest news and advances in treatment and to bring fellow sufferers together to help support one another.
2007: Make-A-Wish Foundation
Registered Charity: 295672
Make-A-Wish grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses.
In 2006, the charity approached 21 years of wish granting. Make-A-Wish was founded in the UK in June 1986 and, since then, has granted over 4,700 wishes. At any given time, over 20,000 children in the UK are living with life-threatening conditions and their aim is to grant 21 wishes a week by the year 2010. Whether a wish is to be a princess or a policeman for a day, own the latest computer equipment, meet a favourite celebrity or just enjoy some special time away from home with their family, a wish come true brings so much to a child's life and provides memories for the family that last a lifetime.
