Community

Donations with a value of over

£5m

 

Over

350

registered charities supported

Over

500

tonnes diverted from landfill through furniture donations

Our aim is to make a difference, so we do not support a single ‘Charity of the Year’, as we believe we are able to make a greater impact by working with a wider group of charities and organisations

Approach

Our priorities are to:

  • Offer support to charities and organisations of all sizes with a donation that is of most benefit to them whether it be a financial donation, or the offer of products that can be used to realise additional funding
  • Support individual charities for a number of years with a specified annual donation as this commitment helps them to be able to plan their work with confidence
  • Focus our resources on charitable projects that benefit communities across the UK and Ireland working in the areas of children, care for the sick and people with disabilities, healthcare and medical research and community support
  • Work to identify and develop new relationships with charities and organisations
Challenges and Targets

Work with charitable organisations to identify values they are able to realise from products Next can no longer use. This initiative supports both our community focus and our environmental target of waste reduction and landfill diversion.
