CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Our CSR policy is demonstrated by the Better Community Business Network (bcbn.org.uk), a charity started by the directors of Henley Homes to support a number of important causes across communities. The Trustees of BCBN came together to support local and national projects that make a real difference. BCBN seeks to promote altruism amongst the business community and to encourage it to re-direct some of its energy, creativity and vast skills base for the betterment of wider society It has attracted support from respected, high profile figures such as His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales; Leader of the House of Commons, Rt Hon Chris Grayling; Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP; former Attorney General, Rt Hon Dominic Grieve and others. Since its inception in 2011, BCBN has raised £1,370,400 for local and national community causes including The Refugee Council, Children Services; NHS Trust, Reach Services; Muslim Youth Helpline and the Date Palm Project, housing ex-offenders. BCBN does not seek government or grant funding for any of its community causes. As a founding principle, BCBN’s running costs are met entirely by the Trustees and all funds raised go to the projects that need them. Alongside our annual fundraising events, BCBN launched its Grant Initiative in September 2014 to empower charities and local projects in the fields of education, youth and community services, with grant awards of up to £3,000.
