As part of our 2019 BIG Investigo Give campaign, we supported Panathlon, a charity that gives children with disabilities and special needs opportunities to engage in competitive sport. Our people helped run their sporting events over the course of the year, which was incredibly enjoyable for the children who took part, and fantastically rewarding for us.
We’re mentoring young people as part of our partnership with LIFEbeat, which aims to improve the mental health, wellbeing and positive potential of young people by building creative communities and a sense of belonging. Through virtual and face-to-face sessions, our volunteers are offering their advice, support and wisdom to help improve young people’s lives – and we’re learning just as much from them as they are from us.
Trees for Cities
We’re committed to donating to Trees for Cities for every placement we make, and as part of this, our people can roll their sleeves up and plant a tree. Trees for Cities is an independent environmental charity that delivers urban tree planting projects across the UK and oversees.
We also help them revitalise forgotten spaces, create healthier environments, and build edible playgrounds for children, helping to bring to life their vision of urban forests in socially and economically deprived areas.
