Our 10th Year Charity Initiative
In 2015, JCA Group celebrated its 10th birthday and were delighted to raise a fantastic £150,000 for the 10 amazing charities we supported throughout the year.
A huge thank you to our clients, friends and the JCA Group team, who helped make this possible.

- Combat Stress

- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

- Live Life Give Life
This charity exists to encourage people to register as organ donors via awareness campaigns, events and activities.
They also fund initiatives to improve the welfare of (and outcome for) patients in need or receipt of organ tissue transplants, in addition to supporting the public recognition of donors and their families.
Live Life Give Life are proud to work closely with other transplant organisations and charities, including NHS Blood and Transplants, the Donor Family Network, Transplant Kids and the Transplant Support Network.
- Smile Train
Every year more than 170,000 children are born with cleft lip and/or palate. Most can’t afford surgery. Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where millions of children are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly and aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job.
The good news is every single child with a cleft can be helped with surgery that costs as little as £150 and takes as little as 45 minutes.
- The Brain Tumour Charity
The Brain Tumour Charity is the UK’s largest dedicated brain tumour charity, committed to fighting brain tumours on all fronts.
They fund scientific and clinical research into brain tumours and offer support and information to those affected, whilst raising awareness, influencing policy and improve the overall understanding, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours.
Tommy’s funds research into pregnancy problems and provides information to parents. They believe it is unacceptable that one in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and birth.
When a pregnancy fails or a baby dies, it causes devastation. Twenty three years ago, frustrated at the lack of research that meant they could rarely tell families why their babies were dying, two obstetricians in St Thomas’ Hospital in London were inspired to start a campaign for more research into pregnancy problems.
Soon, their cause was taken up by others and a charity known as ‘Tommy’s’ (after St Thomas’ Hospital) was born.
That was 1992.
Today, they lead the way in maternal and fetal research in the UK.
