Research by Business in the Community shows that the public believe business should play its part in the community, particularly through using the power of its brand and products to support charities and causes.

We are committed to encouraging our employees to use their skills to support their local community and we aim to lead the sector in raising money for charity.

Educational Partnerships

Henderson Group actively works with local schools and educational partnerships to support the development of young people. This can be through mentoring, involvement in the Young Enterprise scheme and BiTC Business Class, sponsorship of school sports day kits and offering work placements across the Group.

Charitable Giving

Henderson Group believes in contributing to the well-being of the communities in which it operates. We have a programme which operates at different levels: at Group level we select a charity and, with support from our retail partners make regular donations; we encourage teams within the business to run charitable events, either for the Group charity or for another cause that is important to those involved; and we offer support to employees to undertake sponsored activities.

Our employees also have the opportunity to donate regularly to a charity of their choice through the payroll Give as You Earn Scheme.

Community Retailer

Henderson Group has the resources and financial possibilities to support their local communities. Whether this is by building charity partnerships, donating money, supporting local charity events or selling products whereby a part of the profit is given to charity, Henderson Group can contribute to a better community.

In recent years there has been increased interest by individuals to help others in need. This is not only in the form of financial support but also by active and personal involvement. Henderson Group actively promotes volunteering and motivates employees to leave their workplace during work to go into their community and give help wherever it is needed.
