Grafton business units operate in a diverse range of communities across the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and Finland and many of our colleagues come from these communities. It’s incredibly important to act as a good neighbour and use our skills and experience to help those in need.

Colleagues care deeply about supporting community programmes through volunteering, fundraising and donating.

The contribution by the Group to communities is made up of:

- Volunteering time by our colleagues paid for by the business for a host of activities which could include everything from supporting local schools, refurbishing buildings, skills training and fundraising.

- Monetary donations from the business to local community groups, usually voted for by our colleagues. These can take the form of donations and matched funding for colleague fundraising activities.

- In kind donations which includes materials donated at a local level to support the refurbishment of buildings and services such as marketing, press and print needed to raise awareness of the organisations and issues.

In addition, our colleagues and customers love to get involved in fundraising.
