In 2015 our colleagues spent 360,000 hours volunteering to make a difference in their communities. They support our Charity of the Year, BBC Children in Need, as well as charities and organisations that are local and personal to them, utilising their core skills and resources to help improve education, employability and enterprise to strengthen community organisations across the UK.
Our ambition is to make a difference in the communities where we live and work to help Britain prosper. Supporting and encouraging our colleagues to use their skills to volunteer for the causes that matter to them, plays a key part in achieving that.
