Our sponsorship strategy is to focus primarily on the youth/children of Jersey. We believe that our global reach and client base is only made possible because of our commitment to both our employees and the local Jersey community. Our sponsorship strategy reflects not only these commitments, but also our identity and our values that are central to every aspect of our work.
We are strongly committed to supporting Jersey’s future – its youth – and we believe that success should not be limited to a minority and therefore want our support to be accessible to as many young people as can benefit from it.
Our flagship sponsorship focuses on equipping Jersey’s disabled children and young adults with the skills, support and self-belief to be the best that they can. In March 2015 Volaw and Voisin formed a partnership with Wetwheels Jersey to ensure as many members of the community as possible get to learn about the Island’s unique marine environment.
In December 2012 we started working with The Inclusion Project, a charity that supports 11-25 year olds with special needs, and which enables them to get involved in activities that they would otherwise not have a chance to enjoy. Our support of the Inclusion Project was a natural progression from our five-year relationship with Mont à l’Abbé special needs school in Jersey, which we supported with the provision of funding for major projects and staff time for smaller events designed to give these young people unforgettable experiences.
In May 2011, Volaw won the Jersey Association of Trust Companies’ inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Award in recognition of our CSR programme.
