Supporting local projects

Through the Good Neighbour and Active Community programmes, as at the end of 2015 we had committed long-term support (three years or more) to 50 projects across the UK and Ireland.

Through the group’s companies and brands, we support local community projects which seek to help those living in deprived communities. Our aim is to not only provide financial help but to get our staff involved in the projects too. This helps motivate and develop our staff and leverages the financial support we give so that even more is achieved.

Our projects are spread throughout communities in the UK and Ireland, and in Kenya, where we support a local education project. The programmes invest in local community projects by providing cash support and creating opportunities for our staff to get involved. Our cash support can be a one-off investment to a project or a longer-term investment for three years or more.
