Social Value

We create social value through our engagement with our local and wider community and financial investment to improve the lives of the community in which we operate.  This is more than an abstract policy or strategy, this has been built into the way we operated for the last 20 years.

Some examples of where we have contributed social value:

  1. Our trainee scheme has been running since 2008, when opportunities arise we take on young people, normally those struggling to find a direction after A levels or university and provide them with a structured work experience and support them in the achievement of a range of qualifications and a sense of purpose and direction that has enabled ALL of them to move into fulfilling careers. As we don’t have access to apprenticeship funding we have built our own.
  2. We have provided support for education in Africa. We have been involved in two initiatives, the first was to help build a school in South Africa, where we provided funding and sent one of our trainees along to help as part of the personal development. You can read more about that here
  3. We have supported the Rugby Trust in Uganda, as part of the APM Challenge, (an initiative for young project managers) which involved extensive fund raising to buy technology and the development of an online training programme for local communities connected with the Rugby Trust in the villages, you can read more about this here.
  4. Local community support for young people in our town of Portishead, we have sponsored one of the local junior football teams for 5 years in terms of resources and have also provided a more active role on their management committee by providing advice and support on commercial and other matters, you can read more about that here.
  5. Bristol 10km for charity. The Aspire Europe team committed to undertake the run after a tragic incident in the town with the suicide of a teenager. You can read more about our charity efforts here.
  6. Teenage Cancer – this year we sponsored an ex employee to  undertake the grueling Lands End to John O’Groats ride for charity, and our Managing Director raised money for the Bone Cancer Trust by doing 9 mountain bike rides in 9 days in some of the most challenging trail centres in the country as part of the support team, you can read about that here.
