We are delighted to announce that through our new Xoserve Academy, we have donated over £1,000 to a selection of local charities.
Our Academy was introduced to be the ‘go to’ place for collaborative learning across Xoserve. A platform where our people can develop their skills, identify and build their career paths, access learning programmes and share knowledge and expertise with colleagues.
By completing our Academy Essential modules, employees were given a choice of four charities to choose from where Xoserve made a donation on their behalf.
The four charities we have donated to offer a wide range of support to people living across the Midlands. We are extremely proud to have been able to help them, especially during these unprecedented times. The four charities we have donated to are:
- St Basils work with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness. They help over 5,000 young people per year across the West Midlands.
- Cherished is a non-profit organisation who provide support for girls in Primary and Secondary schools across Birmingham.
- The Prince's Trust help young people gain confidence, get a job or start a business. Our contribution has been donated to the local team based in Chelmsley Wood. Donations and local funding are essential for them to run additional training and higher quality programmes.
- Birmingham Dogs Home have been rescuing, reuniting and rehoming lost and abandoned dogs across the West Midlands and South Staffordshire areas since 1892. The charity doesn’t receive any Government funding and is entirely reliant upon the public in our local communities.
“We are extremely happy to have been able to donate to not only one but several local charities. We selected these charities as they support learning and development, something we are striving to achieve within our own business," said Gayle Thursfield, People Development Partner. “These charities rely on public funding, so it is important for us to support them and we hope to continue to do more in future.”
