FirstGroup charity partnership with Action for Children

FirstGroup and Action for Children

 

FirstGroup and Action for Children are working together to support young people on their journey to better mental health. 
 
Just under two years into our partnership, we have hit an incredible partnership value of £1.9 million in employee fundraising, corporate donations and the commercial value of gifts in kind, making it FirstGroup’s most successful partnership to date in terms of value. 
 
Thanks to outstanding support from FirstGroup, Action for Children benefits from advertising space across FirstGroup’s UK transport network and vital funding for mental health projects, enabling the delivery of essential specialist support to young people who desperately need help.
 
Kate Broome, Director of Corporate Responsibility, ‘Right around the UK, you can see the evidence of how our colleagues at every level have mobilised behind Action for Children through fundraising, volunteering and pro bono support. Thanks to Action for Children, we have a life-changing impact in our local communities through truly inspirational projects. We have created a strategic partnership that is transforming the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people across the UK and raising awareness of mental health among employees and customers.’
