The TL Dallas Charitable Trust distributes funds to causes close to the hearts of our team. Supporting many smaller regional charities, as well as bigger, national charities, we have donated more than £130,000 through our trust to date.
Thanks to donations from insurance companies including Ecclesiastical Insurance UK and the fundraising efforts of our team, we continually raise much needed funds to support the wonderful work of many charities including Mind Bradford, British Heart Foundation, Alzheimer Scotland, Candlelighters and Sedbergh Youth & Community Centre to name a few.
We understand the importance and value of community and feel privileged to support the communities around our 12 offices through several partnerships.
Examples include our long-standing relationship with Bradford City AFC. After more than 20 years of support, we have agreed a new and improved long-term partnership with the club, which will see The TL Dallas Stand (South) remain in place for at least the next three years.
We are also established supporters of the Northern Aldborough Festival, sponsoring the fabulous, orchestrated fireworks every year, sponsor several book fairs organised by the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association, as well as being sponsors of Allerton Park Horse Trials and Art for Youth North. We also sponsor the Great North Art Show which is a not-for-profit charitable trust that promotes contemporary art in the north.
Other sponsorship partnerships include the iconic tractor parade at Lincolnshire Show, Ouseburn Cricket Club in North Yorkshire and Glasgow Academicals Rugby Club, where several of our team have played and coached. We have numerous other sponsorship agreements all over the country that support both grassroots sports and the local community.
We understand the pressures on the planet and work hard to make a difference. We have installed electric car charging points at our head office, as well as being as paperless as possible and embrace ‘remote meeting’ technology wherever suitable. We are also planning to install solar panels at our head office in the near future.
We have a firm focus on the wellbeing of our team and through our partnership with mental health charity, the Charlie Waller Trust, we provide inhouse bespoke training and awareness for all. According to our annual employee survey in 2022, 64% of the team feel the sessions have given them practical tools to manage their own wellbeing and 93.2% of our team feel they have access to the supportive tools and benefits they need to cope with work challenges.
