Sapience HR has chosen to support Surf Action as its charity for 2013.
Based at Heartlands in Pool, the charity’s core purpose is to focus on the wellbeing and support of combat veterans and their families. Sapience says it wanted to support a local charity which had an element of helping people to get back to work.
The charitable organisation uses surfing and the beach environment as a means to escape the daily barriers faced by those who have returned from conflict and who may possibly be suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or physical injuries.
Sapience director, Sue Hook, said: “As a business, our philosophy is that we help businesses realise the true value of their people. The fact that we can support a charity which helps people realise their own true value and worth and supports them in such a way that they can return to work, is a privilege.”
Surf Action’s welfare manager, Fay Dutfield-Horton, said: “With demands for our service increasing we are very pleased that Sapience HR has chosen us as their nominated charity for this year. It has been a challenging time for us financially and we appreciate the support that the local business community can give us.”
