We operate in more than a world of consultancy and research. We are bound into society, in one of the most varied and complex capital cities in the developed world. We want to play a responsible part in that society.
Our people have skills and energy that can make a real difference to the communities we’re based in. By working alongside local charities, schools and not-for-profit groups, we’re able to focus our efforts and resources for the greatest impact.
We’ve taken significant steps to improve our environmental performance. This includes reducing our energy consumption, recycling and reusing, promoting sustainable travel and procurement.
Staff across the agency are also enthusiastic fundraisers. This year we have baked cakes, cycled, made a conga, and worn red noses, poppies and onesies - all in the name of good causes. This year we have given to:
- Trussell Trust food bank charity
- Children In Need
- Red Nose Day
- Meetings Industry Meeting Needs - of which we topped £15k in donations to in 2013 - read the story here.
- The Bat Conservation Trust
- Poppy Appeal
- Asthma UK
Our Charity of the Year is: St Mungos Broadway Charity
St Mungo's Broadway was overwhelmingly chosen as the charity we wanted to support this year. The work St Mungo's Broadway is doing is tremendous. The issue is close to our hearts as homelessness cannot go unnoticed when walking through the streets of London. We are undertaking many different fundraising activities throughout the year to support the charity.
Here is a summary of the charity's work, in their own words:
St Mungo's Broadway’s mission is to support, challenge and inspire homeless people as they make their journey from the streets to a home. We go straight to the causes of homelessness, tackling poverty, ill health, unemployment and the chronic lack of housing.
St Mungo's Broadway provides direct services to more than 9,000 homeless people every year – from street outreach, debt advice and specialist hostel accommodation to essential health services, support in finding training and employment and permanent housing.
Our vision is that every person finds and keeps a home. It’s complex work, but we are making a lasting difference.
