Corporate social responsibility
The main objective of our CSR programme is to help disadvantaged youngsters into the work place. We are working with charities such as The Princes Trust and Tomorrow’s People where initially we will find work placement opportunities wherever possible.
Very often the youngsters we employ have little or no parental support, and it must be daunting for them to enter the workplace and see their world change around them. Again, I would like to thank our staff for supporting these youngsters and whilst full time employment is not found for everyone, some real young stars have been identified and hopefully will be working with us for many years to come.
Integral are an active member of the Boots/BITC Reducing Re-offending programme. The cost to society of prisoners re-offending is staggering, and we hope in some small way we help ex-prisoners reintegrate back into society and reduce that burden.
Our work with ‘Tools for a Mission’ continues to provide tools and equipment to Third World countries, helping deliver typically water and sanitation projects. We are proud to be associated with this charity for over ten years.
Each of our regional teams are also encouraged to provide help in their own local communities and this support can range from re-building a Scout hut, to providing career guidance and assistance in schools with interview techniques and writing CVs.
