Work at the Heart of Communities

We look for opportunities where the support of our Regional Communities programme can help make a difference! Working to meet clear targets as our colleagues and members join together for community projects that benefit those who work, live and learn around us. And because we’re passionate about people, each year we also donate a share of our profits to local organisations.

Our work has been recognised by a number of national bodies and we’re proud to have received many awards.

Read on to find out more about our work at the heart of communities and discover how we might work with your organisation.
