Being part of our community means getting involved and helping where we can, not just through financial support but lending a hand where we can make a difference.
We’re longstanding supporters of the Chapelton Bike Ride, held annually to raise funds for NESS, and some of our Aberdeen team can be found waving participants off at the starting line and handing out medals and refreshments at the end.
Access to nature and outdoor spaces has proven health and wellbeing benefits, and its important we protect these places for our communities. Volunteering with the Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust, members of our team regularly get involved in projects to maintain the parks and pathways so many enjoy.
As part of our work for housing provider Sanctuary, some of our Glasgow team got involved mentoring a group of five P6/P7 primary pupils from Gowanbank Primary School. We welcomed the children to our office to let them see what the ‘world of work’ is really like, giving them a tour of the office and facilitating participation in a mini legal process.
For all of the pupils this was the first time that they’d been in an office-based environment, and it’s safe to say that they loved it. Our favourite quote from the day: “I know I’m definitely working here when I’m older.” We can’t wait to see them back as an employee in the future!
