We take our responsibility to the local community and beyond very seriously and as such are very involved in various initiatives trying to make a difference. 

This includes raising £10K for Willing Wilson and £10k for The Woodlands Academy as well as over £5k for Overgate Hospice, Whizz-kidz and Young Minds. We are proud to offer work placements and apprenticeships in partnership with local Colleges and have had many placements successfully complete their apprenticeships whilst working for us. 

We also help out various grassroots sports teams with shirt sponsorships and donating equipment and have set up the Roche AV Academy "Engineer Traineeship Scheme" to help make a difference in our local community and further afield. 

#TeamRoche are always on the lookout for new challenges, partners & initiatives. 

Please feel free to share any suggestions by emailing our Managing Director & Head of Charity Initiatives, Peter Midgley, at pmidgley@rocheav.co.uk.

Feedback - July 2024

 “It really does make a huge difference to grass roots football having support from companies like Roche AV. We strive to provide the best opportunities for the girls in a time in their life when routine, friendships, health, and stability are really important. I can proudly say that we have managed to provide great experiences, and that couldn't be done without everyone supporting them. We value the support from good corporate citizens like Roche AV and its evident that social responsibility is a core value within your organisation.”
