The Lansdowne Charity Initiative
As a Firm we are committed to share our success with those less fortunate by providing firm resources to important causes. Through the Lansdowne Charity Initiative, every employee is encouraged on an annual basis to nominate a charity they are involved with, be it through volunteering or fundraising, for a discretionary grant.
Supporting the Wider Community
We support a number of charities which have been specifically chosen so that employees can be directly involved in volunteering and fundraising.
Stem4 is a charity that promotes positive mental health in teenagers and those who support them including their families and carers, education professionals, as well as school nurses and GPs through the provision of mental health education, resilience strategies and early intervention.
EYLA is one of the leading voluntary organisations in London working with disadvantaged children and young people susceptible to participating in anti-social behaviour and violent crime.
Unitas is an independent charity and purpose-built youth centre for Barnet’s young people aged 8 to 19, and up to 25 for those with additional needs. We support North London’s young people with three things they deserve and need: somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.
First Give exists to support young people to make a positive difference to the causes they care about. Their programme ignites a spark of social conscience in secondary school students and gives them the opportunity to tackle their communities’ most pressing problems.
UP work within London communities to transform the life chances of children and young people who have social, emotional and mental health needs through a variety of programmes working with schools and in the community.
Our Desire to Protect The Environment
We are currently supporting a number of international projects (three examples below), which were voted for by staff at Lansdowne, all with a focus on clean/renewable energy.
Larimar Wind Farm Project
This project generates clean electricity using wind energy and involves the construction and operation of two wind farms located in Enriquillo Region of the Dominican Republic.
Buenos Aires Renewable Energy Project
Based in a region prone to poverty and severe drought, this initiative tackles one of the major causes of deforestation in Brazil: illegal logging.
Energising India Using Solar Energy Projects
The project is a step towards supporting the implementation and installation of five grid connected renewable solar energy power plants in India.
Closer to home, at Lansdowne, we have set up several initiatives including a recycling programme, a bike to work scheme, paper and travel reduction plans.
