At Bell Integration we believe we have a responsibility to support local communities. Particularly at a time when soaring cost of living increases are having a significant impact on people’s lives.
Earlier this year we asked our colleagues to nominate a charity whose work best reflected the workplace values that are close to their hearts. We’re delighted to announce that our employees have voted to select Family Action as our corporate charity of choice.
Founded in 1869, today Family Action works with over 60,000 families and over 330,000 children through more than 200 community-based and national services.
Dedicated to providing practical, emotional and financial support to families facing multi and complex issues, its services cover children, young people, adults and families who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation across the country.
Committed to transforming lives and making a difference to families that are struggling to thrive in today’s challenging times, Family Action’s values truly resonated with our employees and our workplace values in a number of ways:
Working towards a better future – together
Over the coming months, our people will be getting involved in donating time, volunteering and undertaking fund raising activities on behalf of Family Action. They will also be able to boost their contribution to the charity in other ways. These include:
The Family Action Toy Appeal: Christmas 2023
Family Action’s Toy Appeal aims to make Christmas magic for the children and young people it works with by giving them a gift they may otherwise not have had.
In the past five years, the charity has distributed over 50,000 presents to families in need. For many young people, the present they receive via Family Action’s Toy Appeal will be the only one they will get at Christmas.
Each year, the charity asks its corporate charity partners to take part in the Toy Appeal. Which is why this year, we were delighted to be lending a hand in two ways: by raising money and buying gifts that were gift wrapped and dropped off to Family Action, and helped to make a difference at Christmas.
