We are a part of the wider community.
Habit Action has strong roots in the community we serve. Not just in industry but in and around the places we call home. Our success is something we are tremendously proud of and want to pay forward. Over the years our team have worked to give back to Leighton Buzzard with refurbs and builds that benefit the local community from eco-toilets to Scout huts, and focus a yearly fundraising effort on charities like the London’s Air Ambulance and other causes based in the capital.
Through our wider networks Habit Action works to raise money for, and privately donates regularly to, the Grace Trust which distributes funds to over 450 different charities nationwide.
Moving forward, we want to do more to give back by choosing a nominated Charity of the Year alongside the work already being done. For 2022 the Habit Action team chose to support Keech Hospice and has run a program of fundraising events throughout the year to aid its efforts to provide free, specialist care for adults and children with life-limiting and terminal illnesses. In total, we were honored to raise £3048 for this charity through a cake sale, charity carwash, STEPtember walking challenge, and the Great North Run.
Alongside our other charity support, we are incredibly proud to donate substantial funds annually to the RRT (Rapid Relief Team) who deliver hope and relief to people across the globe. Whether it be fire, flood or humanitarian need, RRT expands their support services to meet the need at hand. In response to the unfolding crisis in Ukraine, RRT has launched Operation 322 to deliver emergency food and personal care supplies to those displaced.
Since our nomination to join a global not-for-profit speaker series called Tenant Talks, we use every speaker event to raise money for charities both locally and globally. With a 5-year goal of giving $1 million to charities globally, giving back to our communities and to organisations who do so much good across the world, is very high on our agenda.
In 2023, the Habit Action team have nominated Supporting Wounded Veterans as our charity of choice for the year. Founded in 2012, SWV is a small UK based charity that helps veterans who were either physically injured during their time in service or who suffer from PTSD as a result of their service, rebuild their futures, re-integrate into society and ensure long term stability for themselves and their families. SWV focusses on 6 comprehensive pathways; Sport Habilitation, Pain Management, Mentoring, Occupation & Employment, Mental Health Resilience and Veteran Support Network, all of which are designed to help these men and women transition from military discharge to an enduring, meaningful and fulfilling civilian life. To help us on our mission to raise £10,000 for this worthy cause, please visit our Just Giving page.
