Supporting our local communities

Return to main ESG page >

We want to be a good neighbour and believe it is important to give something back to the communities in which we’re based.

We aim to help our local communities and, in particular, are keen to support charities that work within areas in which we operate: East London, Leeds and Manchester, and South Africa. 

We provide financial support to our charities, including through match-giving, and help our staff with easy access to making charitable donations via our payroll system. 

In addition, everyone is entitled to additional leave each year for community volunteering activities, whether as individuals or as teams. 

We are also proud that our Not for Profit team works for charities of all sizes with registered and exempt status; not for profit mutual trading organisations; trading companies associated with charitable bodies; membership organisations; donor agencies and regulators in the UK and Europe; and school and educational trusts.
