Our charitable areas
In 2015 we set out to use our expertise in finance in an inaugural project supporting the delivery of financial education training to young people in partnership with key charity partners.
Our vision for the next 10 years is to help secure better financial futures for 10,000 disadvantaged young people, through supporting financial capability and employability skills training.
All four of our offices in London, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Birmingham have a local ‘Helping Hands’ team. Throughout the year they organise fundraising events and collections, facilitate volunteering days and work in partnership with a number of local charities. The approach varies in each office, supporting a local focus reflective of each office, as well as joined up fundraising events across all four offices. Over the years we have been able to support a wide variety of charities through both practical and skilled volunteering.
Doubling our efforts
We recognise our people are individuals and not just employees, and that for many different, and sometimes quite personal reasons, they are involved in diverse charitable activities. We support their commitment by matching their fundraising efforts and providing time to volunteer. Charities and community organisations are also typically well supported by colleagues in each office through monthly or quarterly fundraisers. Last year, with matched funding, they donated over £53,000 to charities across the UK
The firm also provides an uplift on any donations made by employees through Give as You Earn.
