Everything we do is geared towards giving our customers the help they need. So, naturally, we want to do the right thing for the benefit of our wider community too.
Last year our people raised over £100,000 for their chosen charities. We support those that are close to home and further afield too:
We help support disadvantaged children across Greater Manchester.
We help support projects in Rwanda and Congo. These include funding a school for deaf children and supporting kids orphaned in the genocide.
We are supporting Wayne Rooney’s testimonial year by sponsoring a number of events – with the aim of raising over £5m for his Foundation. The Wayne Rooney Foundation supports the NSPCC, Alder Hey children’s hospital, Claire House Children’s Hospice and the Manchester United Foundation.
Each year we donate our call centres to Comic or Sport Relief – manned by staff volunteers. We took an incredible £85,000-worth of donations in 2016.
If you have a personal cause that you're particularly committed to, you'll be encouraged to donate a day of your time towards helping it. We'll pick up the bill!
We have an active Payroll Giving scheme and over 80% of staff donate to charities of their choice from their pay each month. The group has been recognised with a Platinum Payroll Giving Award too!
