Creating social impact is a vital part of our business practice and one of LOWE’s core values is support and involvement with the local community. As such, every LOWE Works’ location will offer a select number of ‘Charity Seats’; allocated desks available at reduced rates to charitable ventures.
CHARITABLE FOUNDATION & GIVING BACK
THE LOWE FOUNDATION
The LOWE Foundation is the charitable arm of the company and we have taken a moral obligation to giving back through charitable donations, direct involvement in neighbourhood initiatives and support for key workers, creatives and entrepreneurs, through our LOWE Ambassador programme. As such, we have partnered with charities which look to support affordable housing and environmentally sustainable housing; St. Mungo’s, LandAid and Spires Streatham. We also pursue causes that are important both to our clients and members, collaborating on projects and promoting valuable causes with a primary focus on local charities.
Through our Buy One Give One scheme, every property we take on (and every new member we place) generates a donation from LOWE to one of these valuable causes. Further, if our clients and members have a particular cause that is close to them, we’re always keen to support it!
Some of our members go the extra mile in business. This could be founding a start-up or building a meaningful sustainability programme.
To recognise these people and the work they do, we’ve introduced the Innovator Programme. Our Innovators are passionate members that are driven in their work or individual projects. This programme is aimed at supporting those people, providing them with the right infrastructure and connecting them with resources, as well as each other. Within the programme, we offer free desk space, business mentoring, funding opportunities and a platform to advertise projects, using all of LOWE’s available support channels.
