We want to be a good neighbour and a part of the communities where we live and work. That’s why we do our best to help out. Not just by giving money, but through volunteering our time and skills.
To make sure we help make a difference, we focus on what we really know about – energy – and we support communities in three main ways:
working closely with schools, we help children and young people learn more about energy and how to save it
by teaming up with charities like Age UK and local voluntary groups, we help vulnerable customers by making their homes more energy efficient and by giving them energy saving tips and advice
we help communities who live close to our sites by funding and supporting their community projects.
We also support charitable causes that mean a lot to our colleagues – through our Employee Community Fund, payroll giving and fundraising activities at our sites.
In 2012, we became a founding partner of the Go ON UK charity. By working with Go ON UK, we aim to provide skills support to the 10.8 million adults who aren't online yet and don't use the internet. Find out more about our involvement on our Go ON UK pages.
In a nutshell, we aim to give communities long-lasting, sustainable help – to improve people's lives for the better.
