We are here to help!

CK and CK Systems are here to support clients during the unprecedented times as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. CK has always believed in investing in technology and during this time where we are all working from home it has really paid off, with all our staff being able to work remotely and access all systems as if they were in the office! Our staff have been helping clients, and continue to help clients, navigate their way through the numerous government support measures and announcements during this uncertain time.

We have launched out Covid-19 Hub on our website which brings together a summary of all government support.

Update from CK's Charity Champions

Following volunteering at Operation Christmas Child in December 2019 a team of staff from CK were back their volunteering in 2020 to prepare more boxes to be sent off to children across the world. CK's support for Acorns Children's Hospice continues with CK sponsoring their Firewalk event held at the Black Country Living Museum. This was a fantastic event which raised much needed funds for this fantastic charity.

CK staff have been doing what they can to support the incredible work the NHS are doing by completing the 'Run for Heroes' challenge where you run 5k, donate £5 and nominate 5 people to complete the challenge. We nominate you all to join CK and take up the challenge and use your daily exercise to support the NHS staff on the frontline.

Congratulations to Matt Smith
