In the community
Our commitment to the community, the environment and
Historically, Lampen Group, Lampen Healthstaff and now Geneva
Health have had a philosophy of active community involvement and
participation. The companies were the start up supporters of
the Foundation for Drug and Alcohol Education and the Life
Education Trust. Roger Lampen has been Chairperson of both
these Trusts. He also initiated the Workchoice Trust and is
its Chairperson and financial underwriter.
The Workchoice Trust assists secondary school pupils with work
visits and experience programmes. Many groups visit hospitals
for career options. Geneva Health is one of the major
sponsors of the programme and actively participates in encouraging
students to take up careers in nursing and in the health
sector. In May 2006, Roger Lampen was honoured at the Vero
Excellence in Business Support Awards - named the overall winner of
the 'individual' category for his outstanding contribution to
business support in New Zealand.
Geneva Health has also provided sponsorship towards a community
benefit programme known as 'Special Children's Christmas Party'. A
day where over 2200 children with life threatening diseases,
intellectual and physical disabilities, and underprivileged or
disadvantaged children get to have fun with jumping castles, face
painting, petting zoo, clowns plus lots of other
entertainment. The children also get to visit Santa's Cave
filled with thousands of top quality gifts, personally meet Santa
and receive 3 or 4 gifts to call their own. An unforgettable
day for all involved!
In 2009, Geneva Health was a sponsor of the Child Cancer
Foundation - a national not-for-profit organisation that provides
support to children and young people with cancer, and the health
professionals involved in their care.
