02 October 2023

In the heart of Belfast, where compassion meets corporate responsibility, a journey of charity and corporates come together. Meet Laura, a Simon Community Human Resources Adviser and one of Deloitte's community delegates attending the One Young World Summit 2023.

The One Young World Summit 2023, hosted in Belfast, brings together young leaders from across the globe to discuss and address some of the world's most pressing issues. It's a platform where passion meets purpose, and individuals like Laura get the opportunity to make an impact.

Laura's selection as a delegate at this summit is a testament to her commitment to making a difference and her passion for working with people. Deloitte recognized her dedication and asked her to speak on behalf of Simon Community and their corporate partnership in a recent promotional video for the event.

Laura passionately expressed her commitment to supporting individuals at risk of homelessness and her role as an HR advisor means she is helping source the front-line staff who are working with those in need. Her dedication goes beyond the confines of an office, and she is driven by the belief that everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home.

Laura spoke about Simon Community's core values of non-judgment and compassion. These values guide their work every day, ensuring that they provide help and support without passing judgment.

Laura also highlighted the breadth of work that Deloitte has undertaken to support Simon Community. Their corporate partnership isn't just about financial contributions; it's about actively engaging, learning and making a tangible impact on the lives of those facing homelessness.

To Deloitte, Simon Community offers a heartfelt thank you. Their sponsorship of Laura and support worker Sarah at this year's One Young World Summit is a demonstration of their commitment to positive change. Deloitte's continued support in their corporate partnership is invaluable, and it's making a real difference in the lives of those who need it most. When passion, purpose, and partnership come together, positive change is not just possible—it's inevitable.
