Come to the aid of people experiencing hardship, of those facing difficulties in finding employment: this is the ambition of Sanef and its “buddy” employees.

The Sanef group, a mobility player, is aware that concrete answers must be found in order to facilitate travel in rural and peri-urban areas for people in precarious situations. And thus allow them to move more easily to access employment, training, health, culture because this lack of means of transport often accentuates the isolation and precariousness of the most deprived.
Sanef Solidaire is very proud to have committed more than 10 years ago to supporting projects in favor of responsible mobility (solidarity and inclusive) in the territories we pass through. Thanks to sponsors (group employees) who create links with professional integration associations in the field, several associative projects facilitating access to mobility for people looking for work have been supported in recent years.
Indeed, since the establishment of the sponsorship policy, more than fifty vehicles have been offered to associations to facilitate their travel and that of their beneficiaries.
Many permits have been financed, allowing job seekers to be more mobile. A partnership with solidarity garages has also been in place for 4 years.
  And to go further and develop soft mobility, sponsorship has financed projects to help with the purchase of electric bikes.
Acting to promote mobility by thus creating a dynamic to no longer find ourselves in difficulty has become a real objective for Sanef Solidaire.

Sanef Solidaire

"Sanef Solidaire" comes to the aid of people experiencing social exclusion. We finance community projects offering people an opportunity to give fresh impetus to their life and professional integration.

Employees play a vital role in this programme as they oversee these community projects. These “buddies” support various associations at all stages, from preparing their applications to the culmination of their projects. They are the vital link between the association and Sanef’s project selection committee.

What ?

Marie-Renée is a buddy for Recyclerie du Pays Noyonnais as part of the “Sanef Solidaire” programme run by the Sanef Group to encourage initiatives helping people to get back to work.

Committed to social sponsorship

When I became a buddy in the Sanef Group’s social sponsorship programme, I discovered a new way of getting involved. I already knew Recyclerie du Pays Noyonnais as I had called upon their services when I wanted to clear out my loft and garage. So when it was suggested that I become their buddy, I immediately accepted as I love participating in local life and the idea of supporting professional reintegration really appealed to me. It is a very enriching experience and I encourage my colleagues to get involved in the same way. The project selection committee meets twice a year to assess the needs of associations as presented by the buddy sponsors. Also, it’s great opportunity to be able to share with other buddies. It can lead to financial support, the donation of equipment and materials (furniture, vans, cars, etc.) or simply providing advice and expertise. Personally, I gain enormously from being involved in this community support action.
