Every activity PwC undertakes, both as a firm and our individual people, has an impact on the community in which we operate. We aim to make a difference to the communities we work and live in and we empower our people to do the same.
We’re involved with a number of charities and community groups and many of our people give their time and skills to assist these organisations. See below to read more about some of the activities and causes we support.
We actively support local charities by allowing individuals to get involved on their own merit.
Where a request is received to support financially, we consider the aims and objectives of the charity, put it to our locally appointed CSR committee, and come up with a firm-wide position and support for the charity. We inform all staff members on a quarterly basis of all our community service and financial donations creating awareness and allowing individuals to get involved where they feel passionate about a particular cause.
We represent a number of local charities at board level. In doing so, we provide professional advice on a pro-bono basis.
Members of staff, including partners, have volunteered to Childline’s (registered charity number: 170) Appropriate Adult Scheme. This Scheme supports children and young adults from our community, when their parents or carers are not around or available to assist them.
One of our Gibraltar partners has been a member of the Committee of the Gibraltar Branch of the British Red Cross since 2010. The Gibraltar Branch is an Overseas Branch established under Article 5.21 of the Royal Charter as a separate legal entity. The Branch is governed by the Committee of 16 volunteer members. Day to day management is conducted by the welfare officer together with a team of volunteer workers who dedicate their time to the causes of the Branch. The efforts of the Branch concentrate on the improvement of health and the prevention and alleviation of human suffering which is achieved through the provision of specialist hospital equipment to those in need through the services of our welfare officer as well as supporting other worthy causes.
PwC provides financial, banking and accounting support to the local Branch.
We aim to support local events regularly by participating in fund raising activities such as fun runs, cake stalls, etc.
