Supporting the community

As a responsible operator, we want to play our part in supporting communities close to our sites as well as protecting and enhancing the local environment. 

We carry out a broad range of regular community support initiatives. In addition, local charities and community groups have benefitted from the donation of money, materials and time, through our employee volunteering days. 

Our approach is to prioritise support for initiatives supporting: 

  • Education, skills, and wellbeing
  • Protecting/enhancing the environment and 
  • Promoting the community and heritage of Flintshire 

Assistance is prioritised to groups making applications from within a three-mile radius of our Padeswood site. To make an application for funding, material donation and/or volunteer support please tell us about your group and/or project, what type of support you are seeking and how your project’s aims dovetail with our support initiative goals set out above. Please complete the following form.
