With a business based on strong relationships, Travis Perkins is committed to supporting others and making positive change happen

We work on local projects, contribute to the local and national economies, and our colleagues enjoy investing in the communities where we live and work.

Our values mean we take pride in helping others and making positive changes happen. Our purpose, ‘we’re here to help build better communities and enrich lives’ only serves to strengthen this focus as a core strength of our ESG agenda.

We have a strong tradition for fundraising for our chosen charities and work in close partnership with social enterprise VIY through volunteering and mentoring. We also work with The Lighthouse Club and Youthbuild UK, and our 20-year partnership with the Northampton Saints Rugby Club is the longest running in British sport.

We have all been touched by the events in Ukraine and the impact on people both there and in neighbouring countries. As a business, we have supported relief efforts in Ukraine with a substantial donation to The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). We also set up a Just Giving Page for colleagues which had raised over £7,000 by the end April 2022. We know of many colleagues taking part in local activities in their branches and communities, such as supporting the Northampton Saints Appeal.
