As the 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. From early 2019 a member of staff coordinates 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.
“Aico in the Community was developed to give back to communities and to help make a difference. We are a strong company and very fortunate to be in a position to dedicate time and resources to support charities and organisations. We understand the pressures that charities, businesses and schools are under and how important it is that they get the support they need. It’s about doing good.
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 fund raising.”
