Community Engagement

Encouraging colleague participation in our communities.

As an organisation we want to support our local communities in the things that matter most to them. We believe it is important that our colleagues are able to support these communities by volunteering their time to make a difference.

Inside and out of work

We actively promote volunteering opportunities to our colleagues, encouraging them to volunteer during their working hours. Every colleague can take two days paid leave to volunteer to a cause they wish to support, which in turn helps to strengthen the communities in which we operate. Our colleagues get involved in a number of initiatives including:

  • Team challenges such as beach clean ups or green area litter picks
  • Supporting financial education in Primary Schools with our Make £5 Grow programme
  • Helping secondary school children with CV writing and interview skills
  • Becoming a Trustee or Board member
  • Helping out at the local food bank
