Community

Each of our sites recognises the importance of being a good neighbour and contributing to the community in which it operates. Our teams are encouraged to do this by volunteering, fundraising and taking part in events.

 

As well as supporting communities by encouraging local employment and careers and by using local facilities, all BBA Aviation businesses - through employees and on a more formal basis - play an active role in a variety of local, regional and national organisations and charities.

Volunteering takes off at ERO

In 2010 we launched our Community Involvement and Charitable Giving Framework and charitable giving programme. This new, structured approach lends strength and scale to the efforts already made by our businesses and sites at a local level and is intended to make a real and sustainable difference to initiatives within our industry and to the communities in which our employees live and work. Our teams are able to create deeper relationships and make a bigger contribution to the causes and organisations that they care about – and have fun while doing so.

Under the BBA Aviation charitable giving programme employees or sites can, on behalf of a charity or not for profit organisation, apply to the BBA Aviation Charitable Giving Committee for a donation. Priority is given to organisations with a strong local connection to our sites and/or those connected with aviation, engineering or education. Since its launch, the programme has made donations totalling more than $700,000.
