Community

Most of our team live in Inner North London and we immerse ourselves in the local community. From volunteering at events, to using local suppliers and even donating 2% of our profits to charitable organisations. We’ve supported a number of good causes over the years, such as building community gardens and organising fundraising activities for local charities, to providing business support for local organisations.

Whilst we help a variety of different social causes we care passionately about three core issues:

  1. Local independent businesses and helping our neighbourhood thrive.
  2. Helping those with special needs. Three of our team members have relatives who are differently abled, so this is a subject that’s very close to our hearts.
  3. Supporting mental health initiatives both within the workplace and within the wider community.

 

Our 2020 Support Strategy

  1. We have a long standing relationship with Pedal Power, a cycling club for teenagers and adults with learning disabilities based in Finsbury Park, who we will continue to support across the year.
  2. We will continue to support local independent businesses and organisations across the year. This might be through in-kind support, such as the local business directory and ‘advice on how to support our community’ resource we created at the outset of the COVID-19 lockdown (click here to read), or through financial donations for local events run by the Stroud Green Traders Association.
  3. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak we have also sent financial donations to our local food bank, the Holy Trinity Food Bank on Stapleton Hall Road. If you would like to support the food bank, or need support from the food bank, please find more information by clicking here.
  4. In 2020 we have also decided to donate 2% of our profits to be split equally between two different charities – Coleg Elidyr and Maytree (more info on both charities below).

Coleg Elidyr

Coleg Elidyr is a specialist college in Wales for young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, including autism and Down Syndrome. Joshua Davies, one of the youngest members of the Davies family, attends Coleg Elidyr. Since his time at the college he has become the happiest he has ever been, he has lots of great friends and his confidence, life and social skills have improved dramatically. The college provides a safe, supportive space for Josh and his friends and we’d like to help ensure they can keep offering this service for many generations to come.

You can find more out about the college here.

Maytree

Based in Finsbury Park, Maytree provides a unique residential service for people in suicidal crises so they can talk about their suicidal thoughts and behaviour. They offer a free 4 night, 5 day one-off stay to adults over the age of 18 from across the UK. Their aim is to provide a safe, confidential, non-medical environment for their guests. Somewhere their guests can explore their thoughts and feelings, and feel heard with compassion and without judgement.
