Supporting our local communities
Scott Bader colleagues are encouraged to support their local communities and the charities that are close to their hearts. We operate a matched funding scheme which means Scott Bader will match every £1 (or equivalent) raised by colleagues taking part in charitable fundraising activities (up to a maximum of £1,000 per person per year), effectively doubling the value of most fundraising initiatives.
All Scott Bader colleagues can take one day’s paid leave each year to use for volunteering, so that colleagues can contribute to and connect with their local community, building relationships and supporting our founder’s principle of a wider social responsibility.
We are delighted that volunteering is steadily growing year-on-year, with colleagues participating in a large range of activities from clearing hospital gardens and painting schools to working with disadvantaged young people and the homeless.
