Compass staff support Chertsey care home

The home is based in Chertsey, near Compass’s headquarters.

Compass Group UK and Ireland recently enabled a team of helpers to volunteer at Church Farm Bungalow, a residential care home providing support for people with learning and physical disabilities. The home is based in Chertsey, near Compass’s headquarters, meaning the activity supported the local community.

Led by chief people officer Carol Sommerville and head of social value Laura Neville, the team worked hard to help refresh the residents’ garden for them to enjoy throughout the summer. Tasks included tidying the outdoor area, planting flowers and herbs and upcycling garden furniture.

'Supporting local communities'
Neville said: “Through Our Social Promise, we have committed to improving the lives of 1m people by 2030. A key element of this is supporting local communities through initiatives such as volunteering. Giving time will make a huge difference to the charities we support and communities we live and work in, generate social value, and give the opportunity to have fun and team build along the way.”
