Community Mark

The UK’s national standard recognising leadership and excellence in community investment.

Fair Tax Mark

In 2021 we were once again awarded the Fair Tax Mark, recognition of our commitment to transparency over tax disclosures and paying the right amount of tax.

As a values-led and ethical organisation, we believe that we should pay the taxes that are due and not engage in aggressive tax avoidance schemes, even if legal.

In 2014, we were amongst a handful of pioneers to secure a Fair Tax Mark, which certifies that we “pay the right amount of tax in the right place at the right time.” Our tax disclosures are reviewed every two years, since our first accreditation in 2014, we have been re-certified every time.
