Charities

Care is at the heart of our business and as such QCIS has stepped up its charity work by choosing two partners to support on an ongoing basis.

The Care Worker’s Charity, which supports the whole care support network and Chestnut Tree House, which cares for children and young adults with progressive life-limiting conditions, will now both receive regular monthly contributions from QCIS, helping the two non-profit organisations to continue their vital work.

“QCIS has supported a number of charities over the years but with our core value, ‘care at the heart of everything we do’ we wanted to put this into action and pick two charities that we could support on an ongoing basis,” explains Darren Pollard, QCIS managing director.

“Both charities do incredible work for different reasons and we feel very proud to have such deserving partners onboard. The Care Workers Charity and Chestnut Tree House will now receive a percentage of our monthly profits enabling us to help others within the wider community. It will be good to see the charities evolve and grow and we look forward to developing our relationship with them over the coming months and years.”


The Care Workers Charity supports current, former and retired care professionals, by providing assistance to relieve financial hardship or sickness. The charity also provides advice and guidance on the availability of state support and links with debt counsellors.

Shaun Turner, managing director of the Care Workers Charity explains: “We are delighted that QCIS have chosen to partner with The Care Workers Charity. We are heavily reliant upon support from within the industry, and having the support from QCIS on a recurring monthly basis helps greatly towards the planning of our grants giving.”

“We receive a huge amount of applications each month and we are extremely grateful for the support from QCIS which not only helps us financially but will also work to raise our profile within the industry.”


Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice in East and West Sussex and offers care for the whole family, including psychological and bereavement support, end of life and short break care and sibling support.

Sarah Arnold, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Chestnut Tree House, said, “It’s wonderful to get such great support from QCIS and it is very generous of the company to donate a percentage of the commission raised to the hospice.  We currently care for 300 children and their families from East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire, none of whom are ever charged for their care.  It costs approximately £3 million per year to provide our care services, both at the hospice and out in the community in families’ own homes, so we rely heavily on the generosity and support of the local businesses like Quality Care Insurance Services.”
