KidsOut – Giving Tree Initiative
This year, we decided to launch a company-wide Christmas Charity Initiative with KidsOut. KidsOut Giving Tree initiative invites companies and individuals to ‘ditch Secret Santa and buy toys for children in local refuge homes instead.
Many of the recipients are children who have escaped domestic violence, being forced to flee their homes quickly and leave all possessions behind. Without Giving Tree, these children may not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas.
We’re delighted to have seen such a huge uptake and involvement from our colleagues. Thank you to all those who took part in this social value initiative.
At Pell Frischmann, we are committed to delivering a positive social value impact on society, the economy and environment within which we work, whilst continuing to provide world-class professional technical services in the built environment.
Pell Frischmann’s Social Value Strategy aims to improve community wellbeing, inclusion, cohesion and empowerment, whilst providing a baseline to measure our ability to contribute sustainably through our regional activities.
By considering social values in all aspects of our business, from a project’s impact on the local region, to all decisions made within the project’s lifecycle, we can play our part in cultivating a sustainable, resilient, and inclusive society.
The aims of our Social Value Strategy align with our ‘Noble Purpose’. In 2015, Pell Frischmann was acquired by RSBG, the patient capital arm of RAG-Stiftung, a foundation with the long-term public purpose to deal with the environmental and social commitments resulting from Germany’s hard-coal mining industry. RSBG’s mission is to generate sustainable funds for the foundation, so our work directly contributes to protecting the environment.
