Why We Support Young People in the UK
We created the Hemming Robeson Foundation to oversee donations for social enterprise projects that support children and young people in the UK. It is our way of making sure we are doing our bit to enhance and enrich young people’s lives in some way.
We work with very experienced interim executives who have had professional careers and so we want to invest in the next generation. We sponsor charities such as First Story, who provide literacy support in challenging UK secondary schools and their communities.
Giving Is Embedded In Our Business Foundation
Uniquely, our Foundation is supported by our interim executive network. For any roles that we successfully fill which are introduced through our network, we donate 10% of our fee to The Hemming Robeson Foundation which in turn benefits our sponsored charities.
A Wealth of Talent Made Accessible for Our Sponsored Charity
Our Foundation also provides the platform for interim executives to advise, govern and mentor charitable projects. They deliver an immediate injection of commercial experience that, ultimately, helps the charity thrive.
Our Interim Managers go the extra mile…and so do we!
Our interim management community don’t rest on their laurels and they tend to be not only a very active bunch, but also a very giving group. They often run, cycle, climb mountains or swim for charity and we have made a commitment to sponsor our interim managers if they are raising money for charities supporting children and young people.
Charities We Sponsor
First Story supports and inspires creativity, literacy and talent in challenging UK secondary schools and their communities. It arranges and pays for acclaimed authors to run after-school creative writing workshops, and then publishes the stories and encourages students to read them aloud at events to family, friends and teachers.
