The Staff at Orange Genie Group Commit to Raise a Minimum of £10,000 for Buckinghamshire Mind

Buckinghamshire Mind

Orange Genie Group recognise that our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is vitally important to who we are as a company. Our policies ensure we rigorously adhere to the highest standards in four key areas of corporate social responsibility: the environment; health and safety; human rights, employment and ethics; and the communities in which we operate. It's important to us that we live our values and contribute by being a good and trusted neighbour.

Involvement in the local community is of paramount importance to us and traditionally our CSR management board have selected a charity or worthy cause to support. We believe that helping the local community is not just something we choose to do but is actually an important part of our business. We understand that local businesses and communities are closely linked and that we can have a significant impact on communities as a whole.  

In the past few years we've raised funds for MacMillan Cancer Care, Cancer Research, Breast Cancer Care, British Heart Foundation, Children in Need, Florence Nightingale Hospice, forCrohns and the NSPCC Childline and others.

Our objective is to encourage our stakeholders, management and staff to play a significant part in the development of our local communities. As part of Orange Genie’s commitment to improve the wellbeing of its stakeholders, three company directors have undergone Mental Health First Aid training, providing them with the skills and confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues and guide staff towards the support they need. This counselling and support has been extended to our 7000 freelancers and contractors through a revolutionary employee benefits package, Orange Genie Edge. Through Edge, each employee, contractor and freelancer and their family are provided with access to confidential counselling support and guidance. This level of support provides reassurance and comfort to our people when they most need it.

It is logical for us to recognise the pressures on mental health in the wider community and it is for this reason Orange Genie are delighted to announce their support of Buckinghamshire Mind as the Group’s charity partner for 2018/19.  Orange Genie aim to raise £10,000 for Buckinghamshire Mind over the course of the next 12 months through a series of fundraising activities.

Buckinghamshire Mind delivers high quality community based services across the county. They bring focused mental health expertise to their partnerships and the services they provide. They support people in Buckinghamshire so they can be open about who they are, without worrying about discrimination, knowing they will be accepted.

Every year Buckinghamshire Mind calculates the number of ‘lives touched’ by the wonderfully diverse range of services delivered throughout the county. Last year (April 2016 to March 20167) they calculated that they touched 4,885 lives. This year (April 2017 to March 2018) this increased by a staggering 91%, touching 9,370 lives.

As well as raising much needed funds for Buckinghamshire Mind, our partnership aims to promote awareness of the importance of considering mental health in the workplace.

Andrea McCubbin, Chief Executive, Buckinghamshire Mind said “Buckinghamshire Mind is delighted to have been selected by Orange Genie Group as their chosen charity. It is fantastic to see the strong focus that Orange Genie has on mental health wellbeing for its employees and the wider community in which it works. We are all really looking forward to working with Orange Genie and its wonderful staff over the coming year.”

Orange Genie Group CEO Graham Fisher said, “I am delighted with the choice of charity, mental health awareness is becoming more recognised and as that awareness grows there is a need to increase the support available in the community. Orange Genie Group has committed to providing a day’s leave to staff to undertake charitable activities in support of Buckinghamshire Mind as well as matched donations programme to help reach their ambitious target.”
