St Mungo's is our 2020 charity of the year. Ending homelessness, rebuilding lives. St Mungo's outreach teams go out each night to meet people who are homeless and to help them off the streets. With 17 outreach teams we are one of the largest providers of outreach services in the country.
Panathlon Challenge focuses on reaching one of the most disadvantaged groups in the country – disabled children. The charity benefits over 18,000 disabled young people each year in mini-paralympic-type sports competitions across the country.
Our Charity Campaign
This year we want to take our charity strategy to the next level, which resulted in the campaign ‘The BIG Investigo Give.’ We set out at the start of this year to encourage all our employees to take a proactive approach to their own social responsibility.
The BIG Investigo Give
In 2019, we set ourselves a number of challenges:
- To raise £100,000 for charity as a business
- For each team to organise a fundraising event and raise £250 per head
- For everyone to do a day’s volunteering with our charity partner
We have an extremely busy charity events calendar here at Investigo. Not only do we challenge all our teams to put on their own fundraising activity, but as a business we host a number of charity initiatives over the course of the year that our employees, clients and candidates can all get involved with. The calendar includes a charity quiz for over 200 of our clients, an international charity cycle ride, a charity football tournament and a charity music gig to name but a few.
In the last year, we have provided every person with the opportunity to volunteer with Panathlon, giving them a day away from the office to get involved. This encourages our people to take a more holistic approach to charity giving, whilst also raising awareness around disability.
