Corporate Social Responsibility
Higos is a very active company when it comes to getting involved in the local community and raising money for charity.
Over the years we have donated thousands of pounds to local charities and organisations, including St Margaret's Somerset Hospice, Ups and Downs Southwest, Weston Hospicecare and The Swans of Wells as well as several national charities such as Cancer Research UK, Marie Curie Care, BBC Children in Need and the Prince's Trust.
Every year, Higos staff choose a partner charity of the year and for 2017 we are working closely with Ups and Downs Southwest. Ups and Downs Southwest are a Somerset based charity who work hard supporting parents, carers, families, friends and professionals involved with a child who has Down Syndrome. They work incredibly hard to provide a great level of support to those who need it.
At Higos we feel it is also important to encourage local youngsters to lead an active lifestyle and we are committed to encouraging local sporting talent through sponsorship and support. We sponsor a number of sports clubs and teams throughout the South West.
We have a strong local presence with a workforce that is both young and vibrant. We currently employ over 300 staff in our offices and branches throughout the South West, making us one of the largest employers in the region.
