Community

Giving back to society is part of what we do at Callcredit. Each of our offices selects a charity of the year and fundraises for it. Everyone also gets a paid day to volunteer in the community. These events are always great fun!


 

UK Charity of the Year

Mind Logo 540W

Over a quarter of employee votes for our UK Charity of the Year went to Mind and our teams felt passionate about supporting local Mind branches, so this year we are supporting 4 Mind branches to link in with our office locations:

  • Leeds Mind;
  • Stockport & District Mind;
  • St Helen’s Mind; City & Hackney Mind;
  • Bromley & Lewisham Mind.

 

Julie Wright, Head of HR, Callcredit said:
"Every year 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem but hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. Our colleagues are really passionate about supporting Mind following a vote at the end of last year. We’re really excited to see how the charity partnership develops and look forward to supporting our colleagues in raising funds for this very well deserving charity."

Lithuanian Charity of the Year

Micro Bit Logo W256

Our team in Kaunas chose to support the micro:bit project."micro:bit for every Lithuanian kid” has the aim of providing every Lithuanian fifth-grade child with a BBC developed micro:bit. Playing with a micro:bit will encourage children to discover IT, praise curiosity and creativity or maybe even choose careers in the tech industry in the future. It’s aiming to inspire the next tech savvy generation, especially showcasing to girls what tech looks like and how it could become a future career. Callcredit colleagues will be raising funds to buy micro:bits as well as supporting students and teachers in making the most of the technology.

Charity Events

We hold fundraising events throughout the year to collect money for our chosen charities. In August 2016 the Callcredit team took part in a sponsored skydive and raised a staggering £4792.08 for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

We also match staff’s own fundraising for their personal charities, and offer tax efficient payroll giving.

We offer a fantastic Volunteering Scheme at Callcredit

  • We give every employee one day per year to undertake volunteering
  • Employees have the opportunity to volunteer as an individual or as part of a team
  • There’s flexibility and variety around when and where employees can volunteer
  • There’s opportunities near to all offices, or UK-wide


We’ve been in touch with a number of organisations already, to give employees lots of ideas for where they could volunteer, for example: SkillsBridge, St. Gemma’s Hospice, Age UK, Mosaic Leeds University and Centrepoint. However, there’s also the option for employees to volunteer with an organisation that is personal to them.

Community Volunteering

We get great feedback from people about our volunteering days. Teams choose the cause they’d like to support and do it as a paid, working day.

For example in 2016 our Leeds Marketing Team worked together at St Gemma's warehouse to sort donated stock and prepare it to be sent to the 23 St Gemma’s Hospice shops across Leeds.  

       

"I was really impressed to learn about Callcredit’s work in the community. Callcredit gives the opportunity of a day’s paid volunteering so you can contribute to any cause you want to support. Being able to use my own skills to give something to the community is very important to me. This year I’m volunteering on the Mosaic Enterprise challenge which is an opportunity for me to mentor secondary level students, introducing them to business concepts and guiding them through a business challenge. I like the idea that I can contribute in my own small way to the challenges goal of building confidence in students and improve their chances of fulfilling their potential." Louis Elder, Product Owner in Product Development
