Wherever we are in the world, supporting local charities is a major commitment for our teams. As a company, we’re proud to give our charity backing to a number of organisations, and we also have nominated charity partners, on which a large part of our charitable effort is focused.
Many of the charities supported by employees at our different facilities around the world concentrate on providing educational help for children and those who are in general need. Others are connected with the protection of the environment.
“Our employees are a part of the local communities in which they live – and so are we. That’s why we’re keen to do whatever we can to help.”

All around the world, Perkins is closely involved in charity projects aimed at benefiting local communities where we work. We’re involved in a number of projects for children and those in general need, and in supporting organisations connected with the protection of the environment.
Much of our involvement concerns the promotion of science, technology, engineering and maths – the vital STEM subjects for the world’s future scientists and engineers.
Seguin and Griffin in the U.S, Wuxi in China and Peterborough in the UK are among facilities where employees are ready to offer help to local schools, whether by providing experts to speak to pupils about engineering and the world of work, or supplying books, stationery and writing materials.
Our employees support a variety of children’s charities in their own areas, whether it’s providing support for heart operations for children in Shanghai, China, or involving themselves in a scheme to provide materials and facilities for art work to help young patients recuperating in hospital.
At various facilities, employees donate clothing, stationery and school equipment for underprivileged children and young people. And at Stafford, there’s support for Katharine House Hospice, which provides people suffering from incurable illnesses with free care.
We are fully behind a range of local environmental charities and appeals.
Our contributions include tree-planting in Wuxi and work with the local wildlife trust in Stafford to support a community project called Wild About Stafford. Its aim is to protect the natural wetlands around the town, and encourage local people to discover the plants and animals that live there.
