Corporate Social Responsibility

At Marriott Harrison LLP, we endeavour to understand the relationship between our business and the community in which we operate so we can make a positive impact.

At Age UK Camden, older people in our community are at the centre of everything that we do, in delivery of our services and in support of the ‘older person’s voice’. We are delighted and grateful for the ongoing corporate partnership with Marriott Harrison. Over the years Marriott Harrison have supported our services in various practical and caring ways such as the ‘Keep In Touch’ card scheme sending cards and letters to our housebound clients, hosting Gadget Clinics for our Digital Inclusion Project and supporting our monthly information coffee mornings at Tavis House. In addition Marriott Harrison have been instrumental in keeping our Good Neighbour Scheme open by financially supporting it at a time when funding was needed. The Good Neighbour Scheme matches volunteers with those who are housebound, in order to provide companionship, and reduce isolation and loneliness. We look forward to future initiatives and opportunities with Marriott Harrison.
