Our Commitment & Activity
Nationwide Management Services approaches Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) passionately, and we challenge our practices on a regular basis, to ensure they are continuing to deliver on our promise, to engage positively with all stakeholders, ethically and with integrity for our community.
The business works extremely hard to ensure its values are aligned with all CSR activity, which is designed around the community needs, demonstrating these four values:
For Nationwide Management Services it is not about 'being seen to be' doing good in the community or merely ticking a box, it is about ingraining a culture of genuine care and commitment to support the people we work with and those in our communities and to build sustainable platforms for others to take forwards and grow.
A continuous flow of activity takes place across the entire business, both within our core business model and within our CSR outreach, delivering services and projects under these three banners:
1. Building Resilience
2. Creating Stronger Communities
3. Protecting the Future
We believe that both our business and the community benefit if we give back to society and at Nationwide Management Services we have carefully considered how we chose to do so.
As a business, we want to remove the barriers that stop people from moving forward positively both in employment and their personal lives. We aim to instil confidence and belief, helping to build their self-esteem, so they can experience a happier, healthier and more fulfilled life.
We feel that every single person has a purpose in their life and should have a chance to rebuild it, creating an independent and secure future for themselves and their families.
Due to an increase in socially excluded individuals in society social responsibility is at the core of all our operations and continues to underpin our strategy for growth.
