Working with the community
Paid volunteering Days
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.
NWTC Good Eggs
Our Good Eggs act as charity ambassadors for their NWTC site and work by engaging their team to partner up with local charities that need support in different ways; through fundraising, hosting events, volunteering and plenty more.
Our Barnardo's ventures vary from hosting activities like mindfulness sessions and art workshops, fundraising through our teams 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 aim 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.
