One Advice Group wins prestigious CSR award PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 05 October 2015

Manchester -based One Advice Group (OAG), one of the UK’s leading personal insolvency and legal services providers, has won the ‘Investing in the Community Award’ at the 2015 DRF and DEMSA Annual Awards Dinner.

The Group, of which Harrington Brooks is a part of, places a huge importance on its work in the local community and takes pride in its position as Greater Manchester’s third largest employer, and an employer of choice.

During the year, OAG staff have provided over £8,000 of their time, skills and experience through volunteering and mentoring services. As part of this, the Group undertook a programme of engagement with local schools, “Financial Education for Future Generations”, speaking to over 250 pupils about the importance and value of money, the effects of lending and spending, and ensuring they are prepared to avoid financial issues in later life.

Colleagues have also been engaged directly in substantial charity work, which has included the donation of over £6,000 for the Group’s charity of the year, Forever Manchester. Further, they donated over £500 worth of food and clothes to local community group, the Tree of Life Centre Wythenshawe, and also donated computers to local initiatives to help residents get online and use the internet.

Jodi Hamilton, Head of Marketing and CSR at the One Advice Group said: “We are proud of the activity which the Group has embarked on over the last year as our main aims are to support the local communities, businesses and schools. This is something which goes hand in hand with being a responsible business that has empathy with its colleagues and customers who come to us for support and guidance. We embrace the recognition from our industry partners as it highlights the work we continue to do.”
