Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the local community and charity are all topics that are close to all of us at CYBRID. We are a values-driven company and are committed to supporting our local community, and will always put people before profit.
Each year we give back by supporting our chosen charities. Our relationship with Canine Partners and African Adventures is what we’re most proud of. CYBRID is actively involved in fundraising, organising events, promoting awareness and providing support in any way that we can.
Early in 2020, we formed a corporate charity partnership with Canine Partners. Canine Partners trains dogs to assist people with physical disabilities giving them a more independent life by performing everyday tasks. Their amazing dogs bring a greater independence and quality of life to their partners, offering security, companionship, and practical help with everyday household tasks. These life-changing dogs also provide psychological and social benefits including increased independence, confidence, social interaction and self-esteem.
We believe that sport is a very important part of growing up. Youth football plays a very important role in this and gives young people skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. We’re delighted to be the official sponsors of Petersfield Town Juniors – our CEO Phil’s childhood club!
African Adventures Foundation provides support to 26 community projects in developing areas of Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar. These projects provide education, health and food security, and social support to young people whose access to these basic services would otherwise be heavily restricted. African Adventures Foundation provides a great deal of support to assist with the development of these projects, typically funding basic infrastructure, key resources, and small-business initiatives that will enable the projects to become self-sustainable in the future. Their aim is to increase opportunity within education, enabling young people to positively influence their future pathways.
What can we do as individuals on a day-to-day basis to alleviate the issues affecting our environment? It’s this question that led our company to start its journey to a more sustainable future. 2020/21 will see us making a concerted effort to become more environmentally friendly, and we are learning about ways in which CYBRID can help reduce its carbon footprint. We’re undertaking a range of small steps towards being a greener organisation, including: switching to reuseable coffee cups and water bottles, switching to uniforms made from recycled water bottles, and buying local.
