OUR CHARITY PARTNERSHIPS
As a business, we are passionate about helping others and we actively support giving back to the community through charity affiliation. We are proud supporters of three charities which are close to our hearts: Big House, Action for Children and Cancer Research UK. Throughout the year, we organise charity days, team events and fundraising campaigns to support these charities and we encourage our partners to get involved and help us give back to the community.
The Big House is a UK based charity working with care leavers who are at a high risk of social exclusion. They provide a platform for them to participate in the making of theatre and to have their voices heard, using theatre to inspire their members and facilitate personal growth. Big House’s Open House Project offers life skills workshops including issues such as: Alcohol and Drug Abuse, Gang Membership, Criminal Activity, How to Avoid Homelessness, Successful Parenting, and Healthy Relationships. Within these workshops, members work with their mentors to plan their future goals and immediate targets for a return to training, education and employment after the Open House Project.

They work with and support young carers across the UK, support teenage mothers in vulnerable and difficult situations and support children and young people in care with fostering, adoption and residential care services.
