At Chaucer, we enjoy playing an active role in our community, making a difference where we can and encouraging our staff to get involved.
We work with our wider community in two key ways. Formally, through our active support for charities and informally, by supporting the passion and commitment of individual staff members for the particular causes that are close to them.
We aim to make a real difference in the community and to help improve disadvantaged lives.
Over the years, we have actively supported School Home Support which helps disadvantaged children and their parents to engage with, and thrive at school during the difficult transition into primary school and beyond
Through a company wide vote, we have nominated two charities to benefit from our fundraising efforts in 2019.
CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) – which leads a movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.
Kids Cancer Charity – they support children with cancer and their families.
From charity races to cooking for homeless people, our people take part in a wide range of activities to help their local communities and to support the charitable causes they care deeply about.
We actively encourage our people to take part, offering two paid days a year for employees to engage in charity work and matching funds raised through sponsorship and fundraising activities.
We regularly hold breakfast clubs, photography competitions, cake sales and dress down days to raise money for charity. Our teams have cleared gardens, built park benches, held CV workshops and helped pupils with reading skills at schools.
