You are what you do

Giving back has always been a massive part of who we are at Investigo. Through our passionate charity committee, we’re always thinking of new charitable initiatives and engaging, meaningful ways in which we can all get involved.

Our mission is to inspire our people to give back. That’s why each year our goal is to find a charity where we can really make a difference – not only by fundraising, but through increasing awareness across our network.

Our charity partners

We get our people involved from the off by letting them nominate their favourite charity to be our official charity of the year. We then shortlist the nominations and put them to an anonymous vote across the business. The winning charity becomes the centre of our fundraising activities for the next year. Our people can volunteer with them in a number of ways, and we give them dedicated days to contribute in whichever way they want.

This year we are supporting LIFEbeat, a charity on a mission to improve the mental health, wellbeing and positive potential of young people through building creative communities and a sense of belonging. They give young people the skills and inspiration to overcome the challenges they face, navigate the divisions in society and lead confident, healthy and purposeful lives.

The BIG Investigo Give

We believe that a charity strategy should not be based on one-off events. It should be cultural. It should inspire. To take our charity strategy to the next level, we devised ‘The BIG Investigo Give,’ an extensive programme of fundraising events including runs, quizzes, bake sales, and bike rides. This encourages everyone at Investigo to take a proactive approach to their social responsibility. We also offer the opportunity to donate on a regular basis through our payroll scheme.

​​Our objectives include:

  • Raising £100,000 a year as a business for charity – which we achieved for the first time in 2021.

  • Each team organising a fundraising event and raising £250 per head.

  • Everyone taking part in a day’s volunteering with our charity partner – offered through volunteering days in addition to annual leave.
