About us

Community Investment – our core business    CCWorks’ core business is in the area of Community Investment. The company was formed in 2004 by Christine Jenkins and Alison Allington following careers in both the voluntary and private sectors. Our aim is to help our clients create, manage and implement innovative and successful Corporate Community Investment (CCI) programmes.

We recognise that companies not only need consultancy advice on their community investment programmes, they also need services to support them. In using our support services our corporate clients have ongoing access to professional advice from an outsourced supplier offering expertise at every level – from strategic direction to database management.

Not-for-profit Services - adding value    We ensure that at least 25% of our business is supporting not-for-profit organisations with their fundraising and development aims.

We believe that by continuing to work with both sectors we offer a unique insight into the needs of both corporate and not-for-profit organisations.

‘CCWorks are very well tuned in to the voluntary sector both locally and nationally, which helps Pfizer achieve its mission of improving health and well-being in the community.’
Kevin Charles, Public Affairs Manager, Pfizer
