As a business proud of our local knowledge and markets, we believe it is important to give back and to be actively involved in these communities. Our people are passionate about helping others, whether through support and involvement with various charities or through volunteering. All of our staff are entitled to a fully paid half day off every month to undertake voluntary work in their local community. Not only does this make us a good neighbour but our staff are more fulfilled, engaged and happier people knowing that they are positively contributing to their community – with the full support of the business.
There will always be areas of concern within the property industry and the potential impact this can have on local communities, but we are fully committed to always finding the most environmentally friendly and ethical working practices. Our goal is to have a sustainable and positive impact on any community in which we work.
Our nominated charity for 2020 is VSA. Based in Aberdeen, VSA is the city’s major social care charity. VSA has grown since 1870 from charities that operated with Voluntary Service Aberdeen, combining them to provide even better care and value for the local community today. Over the course of the year, we shall be carrying out various fundraising activities in support of the charity together with providing volunteers in support of VSA events in the local area.
In addition to our nominated charity, FG Burnett also continue to support other various charities such as Children in Need, Wooden Spoon, Northsound Cash for Kids and Marie Curie to name but a few.
