Corporate Social Responsibility

NVT Group has been active in CSR activities for many years, in particular by making donations to our charity partners, assisting with local community projects and raising sizeable amounts for several good causes.

Our CSR activities during 2014 exceeded that undertaken during any previous year and included raising a record amount of funds for charity, providing support to five young athletes through sponsorship and empowering young people with much needed ICT skills and experience through our Modern Apprenticeships and volunteer programmes.

In 2014 we made a substantial contribution by almost doubling our charitable donations. This amounted to £64,717 (2013 – £35,930). Whilst a number of local, Scottish and international charities benefited, we are most proud of the support given to the NSPCC Scotland, St Columba’s Hospice and the Beatson Cancer Charity.

A challenging mountain climb

In May 2014, NVT’s team of Modern Apprentices, alongside other NVT staff and friends embarked upon an ambitious mountain climb to help raise important funds for the NSPCC in Scotland.

The challenging trek took the team to the spectacular Western Grampians, and the summit of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. In October, after an extraordinary period of fund raising, we presented a cheque for £10,000 to the NSPCC at a special ceremony held in our Bellshill HQ.

In all, 31 people took part in the trek and, in spite of some very difficult weather conditions on the day, six of the team made it to the summit. Our aim for 2016 is to increase the numbers climbing Ben Nevis to 100, thus trebling our donation.

We’d like to say a big thank you to NVT Group for their support – but particularly to the team who successfully tackled Ben Nevis.
We do rely quite heavily on the backing of our corporate partners to help fund our vital child protection services and helplines.
