Charity Partner

In September 2020, Calor announced its first charity partnership with Samaritans Ireland. Samaritans was chosen by Calor employees, following an extensive selections process which considered a number of leading charities.

Samaritans Ireland handles around half a million calls in a year from people across the island of Ireland, answering more than 1,000 calls on any given day.  Every 49 seconds, someone contacts Samaritans in Ireland.  The Samaritans free helpline is 116 123.

As a direct result of the new partnership with Calor, Samaritans can answer over 4,000 additional calls to their helpline This support could save people’s lives and change countless others for the better.

Calor works closely with heating installers and other small businesses across Ireland to help them meet the needs of their customers. Self-employed tradesmen are a particularly vulnerable group in terms of mental health.  This sad statistic resonated strongly with the Calor team, knowing the pressure that many small-business owners face, now more than ever.  Calor will  promote  Samaritans Ireland contact details to heating installers, partners and customers across their social media platforms.

Furthermore, through employee engagement, Samaritans can provide training to Calor employees to be active listeners.  This will enable employees to become sensitive to the needs of others and make a difference to a colleague at a time of need.
