How we support our local community in Jersey – Charities and Non-Profits

The appearance of the Covid-19 Omicron variant saw new restrictions implemented in Jersey earlier this year. And with most charities already suffering from a loss of revenue during the pandemic, the restrictions have been another blow to the sector.

Recognizing this, our Jersey team have named four local charities to support with financial donations of £1,775 each. The charities were:

  • Beresford Street Kitchen: a social enterprise providing education, training and employment to people with learning disabilities and autism in Jersey.

  • Jersey Women’s Shelter: is the only independent domestic violence charity in Jersey and operates a safe house to provide a comfortable and safe place for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

  • Friends of the Special Infant Care Unit Jersey: is a charity which raises funds for the purchase of essential specialist equipment, the training and development of the neonatal team, and to help families who have to travel to the UK for their babies to receive treatment .

  • Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust: Local resident Will Highfield has raised over £60,000 for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, an international charity that runs Jersey Zoo and aims to save species from extinction. Will puts himself to the test by running ultra-marathons around the world, including a 100-mile race around the cliffs of Jersey!

Additionally, the Ocorian Trustees fund matched our donations in addition to a separate donation of £10,000 to the Jersey Special Care Baby Unit.

When it comes to our social and environmental impacts and our engagement with the local community, we take our responsibilities seriously. Selecting projects that build relationships and leave lasting legacies is part of the One Ocorian culture.
