Employee volunteering through Just an hour.
We encourage our employees to support community and charitable organisations through our employee volunteering scheme Just an hour. This scheme allows employees to give a minimum of 15 working hours every year to support causes close to their hearts.
Since the launch of Just an hour in 2002, our employees have given over 100,000 hours in support of the communities we serve, something we are very proud of.
Last year 55% of employees participated in Just an hour taking our community support beyond a pure donation of cash using their wealth of knowledge, skills and expertise.
Our employees often find opportunities through Just an hour allow them to learn new skills and can increase their confidence so they also benefit. Some departments use Just an hour for team building.
We are always looking for new projects to support and if there is a project within our service area that could benefit please complete a short application form here.
