Supporting the community

G4S really gets involved in the communities in which it operates and we actively encourage employees to do the same

Our community investment principles are:

  • Offer employment opportunities within the local communities in which we operate
  • Help build safer communities by engaging with young people, primarily through sport and constructive activities, to help them lead purposeful lives
  • Provide assistance to a range of charitable causes and community initiatives
  • Support employee volunteering and engagement with community activities

Our people show enormous energy and commitment in investing their time, effort and skills in supporting great causes from charity bike rides, sponsored marathon runs, hill treks or abseiling. Our Sponsorship Matching programme aims to help them and the projects they support by offering to match funds of up to £500 raised by them for good causes, related to the principles laid down in our CSR Policy, in the communities in which they live and work. Each year we match 

Responsibility for this aspect of our CSR programme sits with:

  • Corporate Affairs Director, Secure Solutions (UK & Ireland)
  • Chair, CSR Steering Committee, Cash Services (UK)
