We strive to be an active contributor to communities within the UK. As a business, and as individuals, we contribute to causes that we believe will result in the greater wellbeing and security of present and future generations.
Rothesay supports a number of charities and each year appoints a Charity of the Year voted for by employees. We also provide corporate matching for employees' charitable donations of up to £1,000 per employee a year in total. During 2020, in recognition of the difficult environment faced by many charities, we introduced an additional corporate matching programme offering to match up to two charitable donations of up to £200 by each employee by 3:1. This enhanced programme is continuing throughout 2021.
Our Charity of the Year
Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding and won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
Rothesay’s Charity of the Year programme works to champion and help raise funds for a charity that is nominated and voted for by employees. Mind is our Charity of the Year for 2021.
Age UK is the country’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life.
Age UK provides services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people. They stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations.
Rothesay sponsors the production of the Age UK Bereavement guide – this is a booklet which helps the elderly overcome and understand the impact of bereavement. Whilst bereavement is not a happy topic to consider the guide can provide critical help at a time when it is much needed.
Rothesay has also supported Age UK’s annual Love Christmas Carol Concerts in London each year since 2014.
