Fundamentally, we love making a difference.
That’s what drives us to do the work we do. However, we believe it shouldn’t stop there. We might be a small team, but we have very big hearts. And giving back is really important to us. That’s why:
Giving time and energy to volunteer can be hard with the super-busy lives we lead. But it’s a really valuable way to help individuals and communities in need. That’s why are committed to donate the equivalent of 5% or more of our time through pro-bono services. In 2020-2021 we more than met this with 5.8% pro-bono services and with our volunteer hours, we achieved a total 8% for all causes – including Jess making her fabulous scrubs for the NHS!
Charities and not-for-profit organisations have the same reasons to meet as our corporate partners. However, we’d like as much money as possible going towards supporting their great causes.
That’s why we always substantially discount our management fees for all charities and not-for-profit organisations.
We are committed to donating 10% of our profits to deserving causes. Depending on the charity or project’s needs, these are given as cash donations; equipment; volunteer hours or discounts.
As well as this, we also take every opportunity to champion the causes we care about. Nothing is closer to our hearts than sustainability. We love to share the knowledge we have gained and learn more. We’re always looking for opportunities to take part in discussions, debates and speak on sustainability. And we’re open and accessible to individuals and businesses that need help to improve their social and environmental practices.
