We promote several initiatives for the care of our employees’ children, such as day care centres, scholarships, back-to-school campaigns and holiday camps. Some of which have been in place for over a decade.

Holiday camps

The holiday camps answer to the concerns of employees who, in those periods, found it difficult to ensure care and occupational activities for their children. Yearly children and young people are challenged in the holiday camps promoted in Portugal and Poland, where they participate in activities relating to healthy eating habits, sustainability and social inclusion.

Family well-being

We are aware that sometimes everyone faces more challenging moments in their lives and for which the community does not always provide responses as effective as needed. We take on the responsibility of responding to the needs of our families through structured and forward-looking approaches.

Social Emergency Fund

Created in Portugal in 2011, the Social Emergency Fund (SEF) ensures a response to urgent situations of food shortages, domestic violence, the need for legal support and healthcare, among other situations. The social workers working at the SEF design specific plans together with each employee and their family.
