Giving back to the community is a core part of Futurum Consulting and formed the basis of the business culture from the very outset of the organisation’s formation.
This isn’t just a corporate social responsibility project to gain a tick in the box; it’s a fundamental part of the way we work.
Futurum Consulting is a Corporate member of Sarum Rotary Club and Futurum’s founder, Andrew Longland, volunteers for the charity as their Media Co-ordinator, lending his experience in publishing to the role. Sarum Rotary was created in 2019 to break the mould of traditional Rotary Clubs. It is active in the Salisbury community, supporting other charities and undertaking many projects that are for the benefit of the community. One of the key aims of Sarum Rotary is to forge long-lasting relationships between local schools and businesses.
Andrew Longland, is also a Trustee and Board Director of two other registered charities, Wessex Community Action and CPRE Wiltshire – The Countryside Charity. He provides strategic oversight and business direction to both these organisations and is also the Honorary Treasurer for CPRE Wiltshire, allowing the charity to benefit from his many years of experience in financial management. Whilst these roles are personal to Andrew, both charities also benefit from the facilities and services that Futurum Consulting provides.
Wessex Community Action (WCA) was established in 1974 and has a long varied history of delivering services in the community, many of which are still part of the core services today. WCA are advocates for the voluntary sector by connecting, representing, supporting and advising voluntary and community organisations. Their aim is to ensure that voluntary sector organisations and their volunteers make the biggest difference they can.
CPRE Wiltshire is a county branch of The Campaign to Protect Rural England, which promotes and encourages the improvement and protection of the English countryside and its towns and villages, stimulates public awareness and enjoyment of the countryside and acts as a centre of advice and information on matters affecting planning and protection of the countryside. CPRE Wiltshire has approximately 700 members and supporters – including more than 78 affiliated parish councils and other organisations.
Futurum Consulting was founded with a culture of giving back and helping communities and encourages all our business partners, colleagues, suppliers and clients to do the same.
