We are very excited to be supporting Bristol Mind as our charity of the year 2022 and will be fundraising throughout the year to help raise as much as possible.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a key objective for us as an organisation and we have clear targets across various areas, which is outlined in our five-year orbit. One of these is CSR, which is broken into a fundraising target and volunteering target that increases each year. Other targets include environment sustainability, employee wellbeing, customer satisfaction and accreditations.
Every year we choose a charity to support, which is solely chosen through employee votes. For us, it’s important to choose a charity that is close to our people’s hearts, and we are delighted that our charity of the year for 2022 is Bristol Mind.
Everyone has mental health and looking after it is so important. Last year, we launched our own mental health initiative and worked to open the conversation around mental health, reduce stigma and provide guidance. Many of the reasons for nominating Bristol Mind were based on employee’s personal experiences, so we are very excited to be able to support such a worthwhile charity.
