Ashfield launches global impact on society initiative

‘Ashfield Cares’ to actively support charities and programmes through fundraising, time and skills

Ashfield, part of UDG Healthcare, a global leader in providing outsourced healthcare services to pharmaceutical, device and biotech companies, has announced the launch of a new international initiative, Ashfield Cares.  




Historically, Ashfield had a localised approach to supporting charities and communities aligned with their individual operating offices. Ashfield Cares has been created to allow individuals to give back to their local communities whilst bringing all employees efforts together under one global umbrella.  

The initiative has been launched as part of a wider engagement programme known as The Ashfield Way which aims to actively support both charitable and non-charitable causes, and will assist organisations in addressing healthcare, community development, and educational needs through fundraising activities and the provision of time and skills. This support underpins Ashfield’s pledge to make use of its extensive resources and geographical reach with the determination and support of its employees to make a positive impact on the communities and wider society it serves.

Commenting on the launch, Chris Corbin, Chief Executive Officer at Ashfield, said: “Our foremost mission is to improve patients’ lives. At Ashfield, we do this every day by working with our clients to help healthcare professionals and patients get the medicines, knowledge and support they need.   Ashfield Cares embodies these roots. We aim to actively support charities and programmes by donating our money, time and skills to worthwhile projects. We will identify programmes to support and run pledges where employees can either volunteer their time or raise funds to help a worthy cause.”  

Ashfield Cares will engage all our employees through local committees so that they can take part in charitable activities supporting their communities. There will be a huge variety of events, with recent activities including dressing in blue for prostate cancer awareness, 200 hours given to improving a local park and a toy bank set up for a children’s institution.
