Our community engagement

UCB is committed to creating a positive impact in the global communities where patients live their lives or where UCB operates.

Societal responsibility has always been a priority over short-term maximization of profits.

I have learned that with help and support, I can live a full life. I can also play a vital role helping others to accept people living with epilepsy as valued, contributing members of society.

Thomas, living with epilepsy

In 2018, UCB spent more than € 4 million in community sponsorships and charitable donations worldwide, including € 1.6 million for the Corporate Societal Responsibility patient initiatives. This also includes an exceptional € 1 million grant provided to the UCB Societal Responsibility Fund of the King Baudouin Foundation to support initiatives, offering access to health, medicine and disease awareness for people living with epilepsy in resource-limited African countries.
