Corporate Social Responsibility

Financial Year 2022 - 2023

 

We're supporting The Trussell Trust

as our Charity of the Year

 

Corporate Social Responsibility

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy outlines our efforts to give back to the world as it gives to us. At Wavenet, we are committed to our corporate social responsibility (CSR) and believe it not only makes good business sense but also complements our core values and business strategy. In setting out our CSR policy, we aim to deliver gradual but continuous improvements and contributions every year. Our approach will continue to evolve as we learn lessons along the way. 

Every conversation, every donation supports the cause and helps keep us here – on the other end of the phone, in your local community and fighting nationally for better services and support. 


Charity Of The Year

The Trussell Trust

After overwhelming suggestions from our team members, Wavenet is proudly supporting The Trussell Trust as our charity of the year for the financial year of 2022 to 2023. All our national locations in Solihull, Cardiff, Nottingham, Norwich, St. Albans, Chester, and London will be supporting them.

The Trussell Trust have a vision of a world without foodbanks. They do this by supporting a nationwide network of foodbanks and provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty. With more than 14 million people living in poverty in the UK, food banks are important for so many families. The Trussell Trust have more than 1,200 food banks in their network, roughly 2/3 of all the food banks in the UK and these food banks provide a minimum of three days' nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis (e.g. GPs, social services, schools).

The link below will take you to JustGiving fundraiser, please share this around and if you are able too, donate to the cause. Together we can help see a world without the need for foodbanks.

Burley RFUC
Employee mental health is important and something Wavenet take seriously. Supporting charities like Mind and Centre 33 can not only help people going through challenging times but also focuses on prevention.

This year we’ve also decided to support an inclusive rugby team. Burley RUFC is a Rugby team for players of all backgrounds regardless of age, race, sexuality or experience. The club provides a safe environment and promotes friendship and compassion both on and off the pitch.

 

  We welcome external fundraising for these events
