Since becoming an Employee Owned Trust in 2015, the team have been instrumental in driving our CSR Activity, which over 20% of the team are regularly involved. At this time, we also became members of Heart of the City, a non-profit membership group that helps businesses in London find opportunities for responsible community engagement.
There are 3 main strands of activity:
Fundraising – over 50% of our team contribute voluntarily through payroll giving, of which we have received a Diamond Award from the Charities Trust, as well as organising regular fundraising events through out the year, for our chosen charity – in 2018 the team chose UCLH Neonatal fund
Community outreach – the practice decided to pursue greening-up projects in our local Lambeth, and there is now a well-advanced project to provide a space for the local Myatt’s Fields Park community group and its volunteer gardeners.
Sustainable and responsible business practices
RIBA have also featured our CSR initiatives, discussing how the activity can contribute to office culture.
