In 2018 we chose a selection of UK and international charities to partner with until 2021.
The charities, which were chosen by our people, support causes that resonate with who we are as a business and have an impact in the countries where we operate.
Our targets are:
+ Inspiring young people to be more active
+ Empowering disadvantaged communities
SportInspired tackles childhood obesity in disadvantaged communities through fun and inclusive sports programmes for schools. We will be supporting sports festivals and outreach programmes in four UK locations: Blackburn, London, Nottingham and Sunderland.
Panathlon provides sporting opportunities for over 17,500 young people with disabilities each year. Our partnership will enable the expansion of Panathlon’s swim programme to involve over 5,000 disabled swimmers and more than 1,000 young leaders over three years.
The British Council
The British Council supports economic empowerment through educational opportunities. We’ll be supporting the development of online learning resources that enable more young people, especially women, in Thailand to access the craft sector.
