Corporate Social Responsibilities
Pathways is a firm believer of embracing social responsibilities and has worked closely with Charities and Third-Party Organisations over the years, providing financial and palpable support. Pathways sponsors a number of sports teams within the Children In Care/Care Leavers Sector, community gardens, as well as providing fundingevents such as Children in Care Awards, Care Leavers Awards, Family Fun days and Christmas Parties for Families in need.
In 2018 Pathways decided to end its multiple financial contributions previously set up with Charities, and focus on one tangible, meaningful relationship. After the process of searching and vetting a suitable partner, the Chief Executive; David Thompson, made a pledge to work alongside Village by Village, a charity focussed on improving the lives of children, families, and communities across West Africa.
Through this partnership, Pathways & its Chief Executive have pledged to collectively finance the rebuilding of a 6-classroom junior school in AboAbo.
This ambitious project not only secures a safe learning environment for the children of AboAbo community and surrounding areas, but it also signals the beginning of a working relationship between Pathways & Village by Village, a relationship which will allow Pathways to support this fantastic Charity, but also provide opportunities for our service users, and workforce, to travel over to this community and volunteer their time and skills to support it even further.
Our Chief Executive has this to say;
“The responsibility we hold in ensuring that we do all we can to work beyond the basics of social responsibility have led to a wonderful partnership with a truly amazing charity. The opportunities this affords to everyone involved cannot be underestimated. To have the opportunity to work so closely with a community, to see how our support changes the lives of those living in and around AboAbo, and to be able to send our Service Users and our Workforce over to experience this incredible journey is a true blessing. I am excited and hopeful that this partnership will be long lasting and successful, and I look forward to working closely with Neil Kerfoot (Village by Village CEO) and his team.”
