We have a strong sense of our social responsibility and constantly strive to make a difference. We pride ourselves on dealing with everyone in a way that is fair and equitable. From providing a house that someone can call home and being a positive force in the community, to supporting a number of worthwhile charities and making sure our own employees are safe, happy and healthy.
Launched in 2012, The Annington Challenge gives children of service families aged 10-19 the opportunity to tackle Outward Bound courses designed to help them improve self-confidence, resilience, and self-belief. To date over 500 military youngsters have benefitted from Annington's sponsorship.
Founded by an Army spouse and mother of four, Reading Force uses books as a way of making sure young children remain connected to loved ones who are deployed. The family read the same book, then use it as a conversation topic during weekly calls, conquering shyness and awkwardness among the children.
This amazing charity runs week-long family breaks for families with a child with an additional need or disability. It offers children a chance to play and grow, and families the opportunity to relax knowing their loved one is safe and enjoying themselves.
