Community and charity

Working together to create opportunities

Our people are very enthusiastic about making a contribution to their local communities, good causes and the wider society. Examples of charitable work include mentoring, volunteering, providing pro-bono work, and many personal and team challenge events.

The charity we support in 2016-17 is:

 

People charity partner
Alzheimer's Society

Our people voted for the Alzheimer’s Society, the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity for people living with dementia, their families and carers, to be our People Charity partner. The Alzheimer’s Society provides information and support, funds medical and social research, and campaigns for better quality of life for people with dementia, as well as greater understanding of the condition. Nationally, we have supported Dementia Awareness Week which gave staff the opportunity to become a Dementia Friend, and have also supported the Memory Walk. Each regional office continues to regularly fundraise for the charity where each pound raised will be matched by our business.
