Adestra staff are proud to give back to both local and national charities through our “Adestra Gives” program.
Managed by a cross-functional team of colleagues from across the business, we aim to raise money and awareness of those in need, and to donate our time to support charitable organizations.
Each year employees decide on the two main charities to support: one that works at a national level across the UK, and one that works mainly in Oxford, the city in which the company was founded, and is still based. This year, our chosen charities are:
Mind are a mental health charity who offer advice and support to anyone experiencing a mental health problem. As well as providing an advice helpline and guidance online, Mind offer local services through over 140 independent branches including talking therapies, crisis care, and employment and housing support.
SpecialEffect, based in Charlbury, aim to enable anyone, whatever their physical disability, to enjoy video games, leisure technology and communication. Apart from being fun, achieving this gives those with diabilities the means to participate and kick-start rehabilitation, inclusion and confidence.
