Community and charitable giving

As a mutual organisation, we recognise the importance of supporting the community. We've supported numerous good causes throughout the country, not only through financial donations, but also with fundraising.

Our partner charities

During 2017 and 2018 we're proud to be supporting Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer Scotland.

There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK. Around 225,000 people develop it every year – roughly one person every three minutes. Without action, these numbers are predicted to rise.

 People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand with their daily lives. The Alzheimer's Society launched Dementia Friends to increase understanding of the disease and inspire people to take action. So we'll be fundraising, volunteering and encouraging colleagues to become Dementia Friends – which means we’re helping to create safe and more inclusive communities for people living with dementia.

 Alzheimer's Society registered charity number 596645. Alzheimer Scotland registered charity number SCO22315.
