Social Value

It is hugely important to us that we have a positive impact on everything we do – not just in our day-to-day work, but we also want to have an impact across the communities in which we work as well. We understand the importance of making an impact in the communities in which we live and work.

Thrive Careers Hub

Thrive logo

Thrive is a careers hub in Liverpool city centre, established to help connect care-experienced young people find employers across the region.

Since it opened in late 2020, Thrive has helped hundreds of young people find their direction in life. We work with Thrive to give young care leavers the opportunity of apprenticeships in various trades including electrical, mechanical and construction-based learning.

We have also supported Thrive by donating coffee shop equipment so they can make their coffee shop a one-stop-shop for young people to drop into and enjoy.

Local Foodbanks

As part of our ‘giving something back’ initiative we have been actively supporting our local Liverpool based foodbanks for many years now. We feel it is important to support those communities in which we work to help them to thrive.

We don’t just donate money and food to the foodbanks, we also enjoy using our volunteering hours to help and support wherever possible. In the last few years, we have donated over £4,000 to local foodbanks, as well as volunteering with various projects.
