Local Community and Charity

We are a business which recognises our social responsibilities, proactively working with the local communities and charities where we operate to make a real difference.   We encourage our employees across the globe to get involved and to date they have demonstrated a continued commitment to helping us deliver projects, raise funds and make life changing contributions to society.

 

Below are some examples of the contributions we have made across the globe:

 

PZ Cussons Nigeria Foundation

The PZ Cussons Nigeria Foundation has been helping the local Nigerian communities to improve education, health, potable water and infrastructure since 2007.  So far we have contributed to over 45 projects in 31 locations that have been completed or are in progress, including the following projects this year.

The Seashell Trust

The Seashell Trust in Manchester, UK, is dedicated to supporting children and adults who have complex and severe learning disabilities, including little or no language abilities, within a happy and creative environment. For some of its students this includes progression into supported employment and both the school and college have progressive and inclusive work experience programmes in place.

PZ Cussons in the UK has supported the Seashell Trust for a number of years working on a variety of projects, including a world-leading innovation project, which is researching the use of specifically created scents to help enhance and extend the communication skills of multi-sensory impaired young people with severe learning difficulties, enabling them to make choices and improve their life outcomes.

This year our Manchester head office site offered a work experience placement to a student who helped pick and collate product orders in our staff shop.  The work experience has enabled the student to build on a number of his existing skills for future learning and work opportunities.
