Supporting local communities

Sanofi in the UK undertakes a variety of Corporate and Social Responsibility activities across its sites.

Partnering in our local community
It’s really important for both engagement with our employees and engagement with the community

In the UK, we support various local charities throughout the year and all our employees are given 2 volunteering days. One in which they can volunteer for a charity of their choice and the other is focused on working as a team to support a nominated local charity.

In October 2017, we began working with SATRO on a mentoring programme with two local schools. SATRO is an educational charity and social enterprise that provides, among other things, mentoring for school children on real life aspects of the working world, particularly in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) .

We are also part of the ‘Pennies from Heaven’ scheme, which is a simple, easy and effective way to make a big difference to our nominated charities and is the largest micro giving scheme for employees in the UK. Employees who opt in automatically donate the extra pennies on their monthly salary to these charities.

All sites receive requests for support from a variety of local and national charitable organisations.
If you represent a charitable organisation and wish to request support from Sanofi for an activity or project please submit your request below. Please note that each request will be reviewed by a committee which sits each month and further information will be required ahead of confirming financial support. The total approval time is likely to be around 8-12 weeks. Your request receipt will be acknowledged within 5 working days.
