Community

See what we're involved with outside of NGP

Being in a position to support community initiatives is a privileged one.

Whether that is through financial support, pro-bono advice, or our people giving up their own time, we don’t take for granted the privileged position we are in. We realise that through our success, we can look after our customers and people, but also do so much wider good too

Supporting charities

For years we have been involved in supporting charities such as Metro Radio’s Cash for Kids, CLIC Sargent cancer research, St John Lloyd community school and Walking with the Wounded, to name a few. We donated tens of thousands to these and other charities across 2019, with a special significant donation at Christmas 2019 to hospices in Leeds and Newcastle and also The Sunshine Fund, helping the latter reach its Christmas Appeal target. That made us feel really good!

Involving Communities

We’re a big employer across the north, with our HQ on Gateshead Quays, a growing team in Leeds, and also offices overseas in Paris, Texas, Malta and India too. Many of our global people have family or friends who may suffer from challenging issues. As a business, we don’t take for granted being in this position of good fortune and focus on those less well off.

Apprenticeship Support

We also support Gateshead College apprentices and work with Gateshead Council on the Gateshead Works initiative to find suitable positions for people who may have become unemployed, but who have the right skills to help drive the business forward.

Giving Back to the Community

Whatever the way, we want to be at the heart of our community. Whether donating money or time, or offering our expertise and knowledge. Giving Back does so much good … and makes us feel good!
