‘Together' is a charity programme unique to Saint-Gobain with its employees, customers and suppliers at the very heart. The partnership was christened ‘Together’ as it represents the aim of the programme – Saint-Gobain employees, customers and suppliers working together for a great cause. Whilst fundraising is a core part of ‘Together’, volunteering of time and construction industry expertise also plays a key part.
Since it was launched in 2002, in the Saint-Gobain Building Distribution sector, ‘Together’ has raised over £2 million and helped make a positive difference to the lives of thousands of people. Charities it has supported include Great Ormond Street Hospital, Wish Upon a Star, Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Barnardo's.
Since January 2014, the ‘Together’ programme has expanded to include all Saint-Gobain businesses in the UK & Ireland, so there will be a greater opportunity to make an even bigger difference to our new charity partners - Macmillan Cancer Support and the Irish Cancer Society.
