As a successful family-run business, with most of our employees and customers based in the local area, we are indebted to our community.
Giving back to society, treating people fairly and taking care of the environment has always been extremely important to us at Wessex.
As well as providing financial support to local, national and international charities we are keen to actively engage in projects supporting healthier, safer communities and regularly volunteer our staff’s time and expertise.
We sponsor local events, teams and individuals and encourage and support our staff in raising funds for their own chosen charity. Every year staff vote for a cause they wish to support and through a number of fun events, often involving fancy dress and manager humiliation(!), we are able to raise at least £5,000 for organisations such as the Stars Appeal for Salisbury District Hospital, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and, most recently, Shaftesbury based BooBs breast Cancer Charity.
Sadly, we are not able to help with every good cause, but If you are involved with a charity or community project and think we might be able to help you in some way, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Promoting local skills, employment and supporting the growth of responsible regional business
As a leading business in the Dorset & Wiltshire area, we regularly visit local schools and colleges delivering career talks and employment workshops. We have a successful apprenticeship scheme and have recruited nearly 200 apprentices in the last 60 years. We have committed to uphold the Armed Forces Covenant and pledge to support the Armed Forces Community.
We are keen to increase employment opportunities for disadvantaged local people and support initiatives such as employment training & skills workshops and work experience. Our subcontractor and supplier selection process ensures our social values are shared by our partners and we provide them with advice and practical support as required.
