With team members from all walks of life, it’s important that we are inclusive in our social value approach and make meaningful contributions to our communities.
As members of Business in the Community, we work with their experts to streamline our social value strategy to maximise the impact we’re making. Below we have shared our social value progress relating to donations and voluntary work.
Buinsess in the Community
Business in the Community is the UK’s largest and most influential responsible business network dedicated to building a fairer and greener world together. We have been working together to deliver collaborative volunteer days with our clients. We’re always pleased to discuss your specific social value needs and collaborate to drive meaningful improvements.
We are pleased to partner with Beam, a social enterprise working to end homelessness in the UK. Each month, our donations help five individuals secure safe housing and employment. Beam also provides the opportunity for our employees to leave supportive comments for people we help and add further donations if desired. Together we are working to make a bigger difference.
We strongly believe that giving time is one of the most effective ways to deliver social value. That’s why, each week, one member of our head office volunteers at our local Brentwood foodbank. As a result of our volunteering, our team have set up food donation points across our head office. This employee-led initiative has helped deliver much-needed items to the warehouse. We’re proud of our people for engaging so thoroughly in this cause and going the extra mile for our community.
We have been working with SNAP (Special Needs And Parents), a local charity which helps families with children with additional needs and/or disability. We actively support thier vision of providing a safe environment and a wide range of support and specialist services with the aim to increase resilience and empowerment within local families and help parents grow in strength and knowledge and become better equipped to give the best possible help to their children.
