Q Cafe Company Wins Gold Medal CSR Award

Q Cafe Company Wins Gold Medal CSR Award at the Energia Family Business Awards!

The Q Cafe Company is delighted to be named Gold Medal Winner of the Family Business Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award, at the recent Energia Family Business Awards! This is a true honour for us! Supporting our community, and ensuring how we give back is true to our core principals is imperative to every single thing we do.

Charity Support

We have supported  Cystic Fibrosis Ireland since 1999. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a multi-organ disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. Ireland has among some of the most severe strains of CF, and also has the highest incidence (per head of population) of CF in the world, with three times the rate of the United States and the rest of the European Union. Cystic Fibrosis Ireland works tirelessly, as do all charities, to support people with CF.

Similarly, we have been inspired by our wonderful team members in The Q Cafe Company to grow our CSR Strategy over the years. One such example is long term, and much loved, Catering Manager Anita Oman Wrynn. Anita introduced us to the incredible Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team. Supporting the Art O’Neill Challenge, Run the Line, and other events, we support this vital charity  in raising funds. This group of volunteers are completely inspiring, and great fun too! Delivering 24/7 response to emergencies in upland areas of Dublin, Wicklow, and Louth, they are one of eleven teams that make up Mountain Rescue Ireland, working all over the island, when requested.

Similarly, it is our pleasure to support the 5th Wicklow Bray Sea Scouts, Trinity Access (Camara Access), and the Irish Cancer Society, to name but a few.

Whilst, once it is safe to do so, we will be back donating our time to the incredible Ronald McDonald House Ireland. This incredible charity provides accommodation and a caring and supportive environment for families whose children are seriously ill and are hospitalised, or undergoing medical treatment at Children’s Health Ireland, Crumlin [Our Ladies Hospital Crumlin]. A beautiful space! Our time spent with Ronald McDonald House is unquestionably special.

The pandemic has prevented our supported charities from running their yearly fundraising events. We hope this little blog post will help shine a light on some new and interesting charities, which you may consider supporting in the future. We are proud to continue our support for our charities, whilst always keeping an eye open for more ways in which we can give back in the future…

Supporting Local

As a family business, and a start up from 1999, we wholeheartedly recognise the importance of supporting local. In developing our CSR strategy, since the beginning we have supported  local producers, growers, innovators and entrepreneurs in Ireland. Buying directly is never an issue for us, and we empower our food teams to source the best food for our clients, local to each restaurant.

Wellbeing and Sustainability

Our all encompassing QWellness health and wellbeing programme delivers an incredible array of health and wellbeing benefits to clients. We focus on wellbeing as a sustainable, achievable, ethical and holistic movement. Removing control elements, we promote the individual in making more informed and empowered choices.

Whilst sustainability is our fastest growing element to our CSR strategy. Underpinned by longterm quality assurance processes and the ISO14001, we have built on this, again educating and empowering those around us.

Our Family, QFamily

We would like to close out by thanking our incredible employees. They have shown resilience, passion, empathy and care throughout the pandemic. Those working in the frontline, and those working in our corporate/education locations, supporting one another, pivoting and always making us incredibly proud. Supporting our customers every day.

Those working in healthcare and frontline services have done so with grace and compassion. We are excited to support the return of our much loved corporate teams as we safely reopen in Ireland. Many of whom have worked with our healthcare teams throughout the pandemic.

We thank you, our QFamily be it employee, client, partner.
