Why this is important to us
Mouchel’s work with local authorities seeks to improve and regenerate local communities - reducing congestion and pollution on the highways; transforming learning environments for school pupils and reducing leakage from the mains water distribution networks. With offices locations right across the UK, Mouchel is often an active member of the communities it serves.
We have developed a new community involvement policy, encouraging our employees to form long-term relationships with local charities by focusing on volunteer work and fundraising which benefits the local community. We believe that these efforts will have a significant impact and will build on the benefits we are already providing through the Group’s contracts with local authorities.
The Group will, subject to budgetary considerations, match both time volunteered and funds raised, and we aspire to devote time and resources to the community.
During the financial year 2010/11, the Group made total charitable donations of £2,822 (2010: £45,800).
