Investing in Projects. Investing in Places. Investing in People.
Our depots are located in over 200 local communities across the UK. Which is why we are committed to helping them flourish and thrive. Investing in local projects, reaching out to overlooked and under-represented groups, supporting charity partnerships, and empowering people through employment opportunities.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE BY MAKING A SUSTAINABLE IMPACT
Our communities are the heart and soul of where we and our customers operate. Where our people live and work. And where the future skills we depend on are developed. We want to give back to them in the most holistic and sustainable way.
Our Social Impact team is focused on delivering social value in three key areas, which vary according to local socio-economic priorities:
- Environmental Community Projects
- Skills, Education and Employment
- Social Equality
Environmental Community Projects
We support our local environment and community projects through three flagship initiatives: our Environmental Volunteering Programme, our Tree Planting and Biodiversity Programme and our Cyclical Economy Programme.
Skills, Education, Employment
Giving back means paying it forward, by working with local schools and colleges to support their education and skills training initiatives. Collaborating helps create more employment opportunities for those who need it most, which all helps to create more resilient local communities.
Our Social Impact team is focused on delivering social value in the areas which matter most according to local socio-economic priorities.
Regional Social Impact Committees
Our network of Regional Social Impact Committees are managed at a local level by our people on the ground - making an impact where it matters most.
