Being a good neighbour
We aim to play a key role in our local communities. Our colleagues are allocated time away from their day to day role, to fulfill an exciting community day every year. Whether you choose to support one of our charity partners, a local fundraiser or another worthy cause, our community days are a great opportunity to give back to the areas where we live.
We sponsor a programme called ‘Be the Change’ in Bexhill and Leicester which aims to raise the aspirations of local 13 - 14 year olds. The programme is designed to help remove barriers that may make students disengage from school and in life and provide them with life skills to help shape their future and give them the opportunity to make a difference to their education and career paths. Our colleagues volunteer as business mentors to help support the students with anecdotal and professional advice and guidance.
By giving grants to communities, donating throughout the year and taking part in local programmes, we play an active role in the areas where we work.
