As part of our CSR policy, The Access Bank UK Limited is aware of its responsibility to demonstrate how businesses can make a difference. Whether corporate social responsibility, or volunteering initiatives – it is part of our commitment to support charities, our society, the community and the environment in which we work.
World Mental Health Day is a reminder to look after ourselves and each other. At The Access Bank UK Ltd, we recognise the importance of engaging with colleagues, friends and family to start talking about our mental health. It is important that we create a safe and comfortable environment for everyone to speak up and ask for help.
The Bank recognises the need to provide free, confidential and independent support for mental health. Therefore, the Bank has invested in LifeWorks, an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). It is a vital resource for anyone who may be facing mental health challenges. It offers a safe and confidential space for individuals to discuss their concerns with qualified counsellors, access guidance and receive information about mental health services.
On the day, our hard-working staff members in both our London and Northwich offices, enjoyed a selection of doughnuts, with the aim to encourage conversation and to take a break from their desks, whilst enjoying a treat. It certainly put a smile on everyone’s faces.
On Saturday 8th July 2023, The Access Bank UK Limited took part in the Race for Life 5k at London Victoria Park, to raise money for Cancer Research. This event allowed colleagues to get active and make some memories with each other for an incredible cause.
The Race for Life is a series of routes around the country that give people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities the chance to come together and help beat cancer. Over 10 million participants have taken part in Race for Life events since 1994, fundraising for Cancer Research. Race for Life has raised over £940 million towards life-saving cancer research since it began 30 years ago, which has helped over 130,000 patients a year, through the development of radiotherapy.
