Community partnerships

Building relationships with the charities we support

Our people are passionate about making a positive impact by giving back in the communities where we live and work. Core to this are the three charity partnerships we have established in the regions where we have major sites; Halifax, Reading and West Malling. Our charity partnerships are not superficial arrangements, they are very much two-way, and the rewards run much deeper than simply fund-raising.

Here's some information on our 2020 community partners:

Healthy Minds Calderdale is a mental health charity based in Halifax. Only 25-35% of people with mental health problems access treatment at all; the remainder self-manage to varying degrees of success. Healthy Minds offers a service to anyone who identifies as having mental health need.

No. 5 Young People has been supporting children & young people in Reading and the surrounding area since 1971. They're a community based organisation with all counselling sessions provided by fully trained volunteer counsellors.

The Heart of Kent Hospice provides expert care for people living in the Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge & Malling and surrounding areas, who are facing life limiting illnesses. They care for nearly 1,000 patients & their families a year in their own homes or at the Hospice.
