Chaucer in the community

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 a number of years we have actively support three London charities:

  • Key4Life – an innovative rehabilitation programme to help convicted young offenders, with support from six months before they leave prison, to six months after
  • Keen London – providing sports, art and craft activity sessions for children with special needs, including autism as well as other physical and learning disabilities 
  • School Home Support – helping disadvantaged children and their parents to engage with, and thrive at school during the difficult transition into primary school and beyond

Our 2018 Charity Partners

Through a company wide vote, we have nominated two charities to benefit from our fundraising efforts in 2018.

Teenage Cancer Trust – the only charity dedicated to providing support, care and advice to people aged between 13 and 24 that are diagnosed with cancer in the UK

Dementia UK – they provide nurses and support for when things get challenging or difficult; working alongside people with dementia and their families to provide one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions.  

Staff activities

From charity races to reading partnerships, 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.
