Key Charity Partners
Our headline charity partner for 2023/24
The award-winning social innovation charity, Hubbub inspires ways of living that are good for the environment and encourages environmental action. We are working closely with Hubbub to create a bespoke programme of sustainability activities that brings colleagues together and makes a positive, tangible impact on the climate.
The Wildlife Trusts
With over 2,300 nature reserves across the UK, The Wildlife Trusts serve to protect wildlife and habitats. Through our partnership now in its fourth year, we undertake volunteering activities, ranging from clearing woodland and planting trees to building paths and restoration works.
Crisis, the national charity for homeless people, have been our No Poverty partner since April 2020 who we support through volunteering and donations. Crisis work directly with thousands of homeless people every year, providing vital help so that people can rebuild their lives with the goal of ending homelessness.
We are passionate about developing the talent of tomorrow. Young Enterprise reach over 250,000 young people every year. Through this partnership we are helping young people build important skills including communication, confidence, financial capability, initiative, organisation, problem-solving, teamwork and resilience.
Recently, we expanded our charity partnership programme to allow each of our five ‘Colleague Communities’ to donate £10,000 to a charity of their choice, reflecting the objectives of the community and helping to signpost volunteering opportunities for colleagues.
We encourage all colleagues to take one paid volunteering day a year, to support a cause close to their hearts and can gift their own volunteering day to other colleagues, to allow for greater focus and involvement on specific projects.
