Local charity support
Every two years staff nominate a local charity of their choice, which the company as a whole then vote for to become the ‘Ansvar Charity’ for the next two years. Various activities and fundraisers take place throughout the year, including sponsored walks, cake bakes, dress down and volunteering days. All money raised by staff is matched by the company.
Currently we are supporting You Raise Me Up charity. YRMU support families that have suffered the loss of an adult child between the ages of 16 and 25. The charity aims to provide financial aid to help with funeral costs as well as one-to-one counselling and support groups.
'Grief is like waves on a beach. You can be standing in water up to your knees and feel you can cope, then suddenly a big wave comes and knocks you off your feet.'
