We feel strongly that we should contribute to our local community and we encourage staff to support local charities and use their annual ‘Employee Volunteer Day’ to help out with a local cause or charity.
Equity Solutions supports Helping Hands Trust, a charity founded by the Managing Partner and his family which helps young people who are suffering or in need as a result of financial hardship, sickness, disability or distress, and to advance the education and achievements of those people.Helping Hands Trust is currently supporting a number of individuals and causes in the UK and abroad. The charity has also helped to establish a children’s home in Nepal for orphaned and abandoned children, enabling them to receive proper food, education, medical care and recreational activities and providing them with a secure and caring environment.
Charity of the Year
Although we support Helping Hands Trust on an on-going basis, we also support a Charity of the Year. Staff are asked to nominate charities close to their hearts and the nominated charities are then put to the vote. In 2016 we raised over £3,500 for Cancer Research UK.
Our 2017 charity of the year is Alzheimer’s Society.
