Aico In The Community

Providing support to both local and national educational and charitable organisations in building sustainable futures for our communities.

As the European market leader in home life safety, we strive to deliver safer homes through engaging with our communities to educate and promote best practice.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility programme enables us to do just this, ‘Aico in the Community’ was developed to provide support to both local and national educational and charitable organisations in building sustainable futures for our communities.

Since launching ‘Aico in the Community’ in January 2018, the programme has been a great success and has grown significantly. Two colleagues coordinate the programme on a full-time basis with support from a CSR team. In order to achieve the aims and goals of our CSR programme, we focus on core areas; Education, Business Enterprise, Charity, Volunteering.

“I just wanted to say thank you to Aico for the fantastic hospitality and for the wonderful donation. It really means a lot to us. Things have been very challenging this year for The Movement Centre, with the NHS cuts, so support like that of Aico’s really does make a huge difference. We all loved having a tour of the amazing building and we really appreciate the offer of using the facilities in the future. We really cannot thank Aico enough.”

Victoria Handbury-Madin - Chief Executive, The Movement Centre

“On behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Aico for everything that they have done to achieve their amazing fundraising total of £20,100 in 2019. It has been a pleasure being involved and supporting the team in their various activities with everyone working together to achieve this fantastic total.”

Kate Thomas - Regional Fundraising Manager, Macmillan

“Aico staff have attended our careers days, Speed Networking Events and speaking to 250 students in small groups throughout the day. We have also been lucky enough to take groups of students to Aico, where they have learnt about fire safety. Aico are committed to engaging with schools and the local community and students have benefited tremendously from their involvements. I look forward to inviting them to career events in the future.”

Meg Murphy - Careers Guidance and Inspiration Officer, The Marches School

“The trip to Aico was absolutely amazing, a fantastic experience for the students which gave them confidence gaining knowledge of fire awareness in the workplace and their own homes. They also gained valuable knowledge of varied employability opportunities. All of the Aico staff were very accommodating and friendly towards our students. We would like to say a big thank you to Aico for providing this experience and we very much look forward to working with the team again in the future.”

Ruth Braddick - Teacher, Derwen College, Walford

“Aico in the Community was developed to give back to communities and to help make a difference.”

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme is very much led from the top – our culture, our values, behaviours and ways of working are apparent, all colleagues are keen to get involved, volunteering their time to support CSR projects and helping raise funds for chosen charities. Colleagues have multiple days allocated throughout the year for involvement in CSR events and everyone is encouraged to use them. We also hold numerous events in the office such as charity cake bakes and dress down or fancy-dress days to boost fundraising.
