At The Works, Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of our business. It’s embedded in our culture, it guides our behaviour, and it drives what we believe in.

We focus our CSR activity on 6 areas - Customers, Sourcing, Environment, Health and safety, Colleagues, and Community - and we all have a clear accountability and responsibility for taking our strategy forward.

Charity Work at The Works

We’re passionate about the causes we support. Our family of colleagues are our biggest charity advocates - they often identify and initiate our fundraising opportunities on both a local and national level.

We also encourage our stores to give back to their communities by supporting local charities where possible. And our colleagues love to get crafty with their fundraising efforts, often working hand in hand with their area charity champion to help #MakeADifference in the most creative ways.

CRUK Partnership

We’ve been proud partners of Cancer Research UK (CRUK) since August 2016. This partnership covers all of our UK based stores (excluding any RoI branches), and our incredible family of colleagues have thrown themselves behind all kinds of fundraising activities and events, contributing to our fundraising total of over £850,000 for CRUK.

The money that we raise for the charity makes a huge difference to life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of cancer – something that is close to many of our hearts.

Focus Ireland partnership

In 2019, we gave our Republic of Ireland stores the opportunity to elect their own charity representative, and Focus Ireland become our charity partner. It’s still a new partnership, but we’re all very excited and keen to get started with fundraising to help #MakeADifference to many more people’s lives.

But that’s not all

We also…

  • Support a charity that’s local to our SSC every Christmas
  • Regularly supply prizes for school, nursery or charity events that our stores colleagues suggest to us
  • Donate demo products to a local hospital
