Our communities

We will have a positive impact on all the communities we work in

We’re committed to having a positive impact in our communities, whether that’s in Liverpool, Shanghai or Delhi. We promote economic growth, support inclusion and develop opportunities.

As part of our community engagement in the UK, we partner with local charities to provide funding and the expertise of our colleagues to leave a lasting impact. Our charity partner for 2019/21 is children’s reading charity Coram Beanstalk, for whom we’ll aim to raise £600,000 to support 40,000 children with one-to-one reading support.

Our people also volunteer their time to other causes they’re personally close to. Giving this time back allows colleagues to feel connected to their communities and supports our social purpose.
