We're working with Charities Trust to focus on the three things our Members, Partners and employees feel most passionately about.
Helping the environment
Firstly, as the climate crisis threatens our children’s futures, we want to have a positive impact on the environment by planting a tree for every new Member who takes all their home services from UW. This year, we hope to plant 100,000 trees - that’s the size of 70 Wembley pitches - and will absorb 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.*
NHS staff and volunteers are working tirelessly and are making huge sacrifices to save lives and help people fighting coronavirus. So, we’re fundraising for NHS frontline causes to provide wellbeing packs for staff and volunteers; support isolated patients with devices so they can communicate with friends and family while in hospital or in isolation; and offer longer term mental health support for people affected by coronavirus.
Supporting local communities
Finally, we're supporting disadvantaged communities close to our offices in London, Bolton and Bournemouth. And, our new charitable foundation will match every £1 raised by Partners and colleagues, doubling the overall contribution. For more information please contact [email protected].
The UW Foundation is administered by Charities Trust. Charity Registration number: 327489
