This includes sponsorship of local football and rugby teams across the UK and joining in with fundraising events, both nationally and for charities close to our regional offices.

As a responsible company we take a positive approach to CSR. Throughout our UK network we are strongly involved in supporting community initiatives through charity events and sponsorship.

Ashgate Hospice Chesterfield

Ashgate Hospice is close to our hearts here at Designer Contracts. At their core, they believe every person matters and they matter until the end of their life and to uphold this they offer support for patients, loved ones and professionals. We have worked closely with them for many years now on various charity endeavours, from sponsoring a star at Christmas to completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, we have supported them in many ways.

In 2018 we made a huge difference to by completely redesigning and rejuvenating the Hospice’s family room which created a home from home for the patients and their families. We supported the Hospice’s Three Bedded Bay Appeal in 2019 by sponsoring a bay, which has provided a private and dignified area for when patients and families need it most.

As well as these bigger gestures of support, we continue to donate throughout the year whilst holding various office events such as bake sales and dress down days.
