Corporate Social Responsibility

One of the values of Larking Gowen is working in partnership - which includes the communities in which we operate.  How we work in a collaborative way and contribute to the wellbeing of these communities is the purpose behind Larking Gowen Community.

Larking Gowen Community is a way of engendering pride in what we do and what we stand for - demonstrating that, when we flex our collective muscle, what can be achieved is considerable.

It encourages all staff to think beyond the technical and day to day work we do - and think how we can help individuals and organisations in other ways; off the clock.  Examples of the type of activites include:

  • Charity days
  • Fundraising
  • Mentoring businesses and individuals
  • Personal committee memberships of community organisations and sports clubs
  • Half marathon sponsorships in Ipswich and Norwich
  • Membership of Norfolk Pro-help
  • Volunteering days
  • Local and National Institute participation
  • Public service broadcasting
  • Work experience
  • Attendance at schools for careers purposes
  • Advising the not for profit sector
