Corporate Social Responsibility
Avonside Group takes its commitment to the wider community seriously. We believe it's important to offer something back to the communities that we live and work in through our UK wide network of branches.
We have invested in young people across the UK through our Apprenticeship programmes and we continue to train and develop all of our people and their career development.
In terms of the wider community, we are committed to working with the less advantaged sectors of society, in particular working with our nominated partners Lighthouse Charity and Emmaus, and supporting their work with mental healthissues within the Construction Industry and homeless people and communities across the UK respectively.
We also take an interest in the Arts sector, where we have sponsored a young musician of outstanding promise.
