We are proud to take an active role in supporting charitable causes in the communities we live and work in. Over the last decade we have partnered with local Hampshire charities that raise awareness and funds for mental health issues, children and adults with learning disabilities, food banks and children fighting cancer.

In 2019, we reviewed and re-launched our charity policy. We have forged new relationships and now partner four local charities; Mind (Havant and East Hants); The Café Project (Basingstoke); The Trussell Trust, a local food bank charity; and Alice's Arc, a children's cancer charity. We feel very lucky that our staff are constantly suggesting and organising charity events. Throughout the year we have many cake sales and participate in sporting events for sponsorship such as the Great South Run. Best of all, Carrington West matches the amount raised by our staff.

Our new charity policy goes further. As well as our partner charities, our staff receive paid annual leave to volunteer for a charity close to their heart. We offer all staff the opportunity to take one day’s fully paid charity leave per year, where they can donate their time (either individually or in organised groups) to a charity of their choice. To date this has included activities such as beach clean ups, collecting bucket change outside major events or working in a soup kitchen. We also offer the staff the opportunity to donate that day’s wage to the charity as well. This has proved very popular and we love seeing the ideas and suggestions come in. 

We believe in giving back at every step of our supply chain. Here at Carrington West, we installed watercoolers from AquAid. In so doing, we have become the proud sponsors of an Elephant Pump in Africa.

Meet our CSR Champions

Hi, I’m Beth and I am an Assistant Financial Accountant here at Carrington West. I joined the business in August 2018 and became a CSR champion in April 2023 to help the team with our community and environmental responsibilities. Here at Carrington West, we are very fortunate to be supported and encouraged to take part in charitable work and our employee engagement is growing year on year, so it was time for the CSR team to grow!

I believe if you are fortunate enough to help others then it is the right thing to do, whether that is by lending a helping hand or providing something to someone in need, no matter how small the action it could make a real difference to the person or community you are supporting.

During my time at Carrington West, I have planned and held a fundraising event for The Rowan’s Hospice which is held close to my heart, regularly donate blood and participate in beach and ocean clean ups to help reduce the damage to our environment.
