From community litter picks to delivering care packages during the Covid-19 pandemic, Reed Talent Solutions is passionate about supporting its communities.

Recent campaigns have included generating food bank donations, helping in donation centres, and financially supporting a learning and disability rugby league team as well as joining in with their sessions.

We have also contributed to summer camps both financially and with volunteer hours, to promote physical activities and enable children to have access to breakfast and lunch.

Examples include:

  • In 2021, we donated £600 to help with the running costs of a summer camp in Parson Cross that provided breakfast, lunch, and three hours of sports activities from Monday to Friday, for four weeks. Members of the Reed Talent Solutions team attended on a rainy Friday, delivering sporting activities and engaging with the children.

  • In 2022, we donated £700 to the learning and disabilities team at Sheffield Eagles, as well as providing volunteering hours by joining in with their fun sessions.

Another project we have been involved in is a ‘Give a gift of a book campaign’, which raised over 500 books in Leicestershire. Working with our partner, Leicestershire County Council, we backed their campaign which aimed to provide used and new books suitable for children and families at Christmas. Our team collected donations across Leicester, Nottingham, Northampton and Birmingham.

In Bolton, four members of our Greater Manchester account management team, including Strategic Client Portfolio Director Lindsay Tunstall, volunteered across three days of the Urban Outreach ’s Christmas Dinner on Jesus project.

The project saw Christmas hampers delivered to people struggling with loneliness, family breakdown, bereavement, or cost-of-living issues over the festive season.

Elsewhere, we donated £200 in Amazon vouchers and multiple selection boxes so Trafford care leavers could receive a gift on Christmas Day.

We were delighted to know every single care leaver in Trafford would be receiving a gift as a result.

Meanwhile in Sheffield, we donated selection boxes, which formed part of 1,000 activity packs that were gifted to vulnerable children and families across the city at Christmas.

Under the watchful eye of Sheffield City Council HR Business Partner, Dorothy Smith, we helped to collate packs that included selection boxes, Santa hats, arts, crafts and colouring books, a Christmas film list, and recipes for gingerbread along with pastry cutters.

Dorothy organised permanent and temporary staff, along with volunteers, to put the packs together to ensure vulnerable families still had activities and food despite the pressures of the coronavirus lockdown.

Those taking part in the project became affectionately known as ‘Dot’s Angels’.

Dorothy said: “We are eternally grateful. Thank you for all your hard work. I am delighted to be in partnership with you.”

Reed Talent Solutions Strategic Client Portfolio Director, Lindsey Tunstall, said: "Helping all of these community projects, and more, is integral to the work we do at Reed Talent Solutions.

“Our social values revolve around making the communities we operate in better places to live and work in."
