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.
