Working with the community

With the marvellous world we have, we are eager to support our communities where we can, with marvellous people we meet along the way...


Paid volunteering

Supporting the local community lies at the heart of NWTC. Our teams are encouraged to support something important to them, in any capacity, and we cover one day on full pay per employee per year for charity-based activities. 

Grow with us pledge

For each new site we open we pledge to build a greenhouse with all equipment and seeds in children’s centres, to help support in their young people engagement projects, and educate on health, nutrition and sustainability.


Our partner charity Barnardo’s transforms the lives of children all across the UK everyday and by working with such an inspiring charity, it allows us to have a positive influence on thousands of children’s lives. Our Barnardo's ventures vary from holding activity led functions like mindfulness sessions and art workshops, fundraising through our teams over our estate and hosting events like the ‘Barnardo’s Christmas Party’ and cookery programmes in our sites! We work closely with Barnardo’s to support Young Carers across the UK and our aim is to educate and promote a healthy lifestyle for children who have not had the opportunity to do so.  


Tim Bacon Foundation

We also work with the Tim Bacon Foundation to fundraise for Christie’s Hospital in Manchester and to fund the UK’s first ever 'Proton Beam Therapy’ which uses the latest technology to target certain cancers as a specialist radiotherapy.
