In field of humanitarian aid, in 2016 the Group provided support to eight non-profit organisations that seek to support and/or accommodate people in difficulty, or who have a disability or illness.

This charity creates living spaces where homeless or socially-isolated people can live, side-by-side, with young socially-integrated working people.

Saint jean espérance
Association Saint-Jean Espérance

Created in 1987, the charity helps young people with drug dependency problems to rebuild their lives in preparation for reintegration into society. It hosts more than 600 young people in two houses. In 2014, the charity opened a third house for young women only.

Bouygues has provided financial support to the charity since 2008.


Association Simon de Cyrène

This charity was founded by Laurent de Cherisey and has developed structures that enable people with disabilities to live in independent studio apartments within large shared apartment buildings.

Its aim is to create spaces where people can "live together" and which do not resemble conventional sheltered residences. These enable people who have suffered a major disability to resume normal activities and acquire a certain degree of independence. Each Simon de Cyrène community hosts an average of 60 people in a shared apartment building, 30 of whom are able-bodied and 30 of whom suffer from a disability as a result of an accident (head injury, etc.). A community requires the building of 3,000 m² of social housing units and "common living spaces".

In November 2011, a community apartment block was opened in Vanves, on the outskirts of Paris.
The charity has a number of projects currently being developed in ten towns and cities around France, such as Angers, Nantes, Bordeaux, Rungis and Dijon.

Philippe Pozzo di Borgo (author of the book "Le second souffle" on which the film Untouchable is based) is the honorary chairman of Simon de Cyrène and, at his request, 5% of the film's box office takings (co-produced by TF1) went to it. The money provided by the film Untouchable contributed to launching another project (€500,000 donated compared to an average investment of €5 million).

Bouygues has provided financial support to the charity since 2006.
