The Group is committed to taking its corporate social responsibilities very seriously and includes social and environmental issues at the heart of all decision-making processes. As the Group continues to grow, it is always looking for ways to increase efficiencies.
The Group continues to maintain the ISO 9001 standard from the British Standards Institute, which demonstrates commitment to quality and improved performance. In addition to organising and supporting charitable activities on an ad hoc basis for charities throughout the UK, the Group’s nominated charity is The Seashell Trust who we regularly raise funds for.
The Group gives back to the local community through charitable activities such as: annual Christmas gift giving for The Wood Street Mission; cash and food donations to a local food bank; and Capital Toys for Kids Christmas donations, where we provided donations and acted as a collection point for toys which were later distributed to deprived children in the Manchester area. We also raised significant funds for the local cancer specialist hospital, The Christie, through a variety of events and visited local old peoples’ homes with our choir at Christmas time.
In addition to these charitable activities we support various work experience placements, apprentices and industrial placements to help develop young talent. The Group provides comprehensive training and advice to its employees to keep them safe and healthy, in 2018 we trained 16 Mental Health First Aiders, trained our field based colleagues in mental health issues and launched a training programme to help managers support colleagues with mental health issues in the workplace.
