Gaucho is part of Rare Restaurants who are proud to have supported and raised over £1m for charitable causes in collaboration with our charity partners, over the last five years through CSR activities and projects. We support the following charities, who align with the three main aspects of our impact vision and values:
Supporting the disadvantaged
We believe that everyone should have chances in life to develop and grow. We work with charities that strive to create opportunities for people who would otherwise lack them.
Employee involvement and awareness
We encourage our employees to give back to their community, through volunteering projects or by undertaking fundraising events within the business.
Providing employment opportunities
We are proud of our hospitality CSR efforts and the sector as a whole as we believe it offers people the chance to learn a wide range of useful skills, and so we actively seek opportunities to give people a helping hand into the workplace.
Only a Pavement Away
A charity founded by representatives from the hospitality industry who believe that everyone deserves the chance to find and forge a career. Our aim is to act as a conduit to employment to help those people struggling to get into work, overcome hurdles by finding jobs within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry, whilst negating the need for people to face an existence of living on the streets.
The Clink Charity
Delivers training projects for inmates to help them gain qualifications. They simulate a professional working environment where prisoners work for their last 6-18 months of the sentence, going through full-time training. We then work with The Clink to offer employment once a person has served their sentence.
School of Hard Knocks
A charity that works with schools and young adult programmes to help empower people to achieve whatever they set their minds to. These programmes are run alongside rugby activities and other supporting elements of the scheme.
Not For Sale
A charity that works with local experts to understand the root causes of slavery. They investigate local economies to discover where thy might break the cycle and partners with local entrepreneurs to create projects that provide education, empowerment, and income. Their mission is to create long-term, sustainable, scalable solutions that offer dignity, hope and a positive future.
Support services for those working in the hospitality industry, offering advice and support for those facing tough times and challenges, such as physical or mental ill health, financial difficulties and problems at home and in the work place.
