“I HAD A FANTASTIC TIME, THE BEST DAY EVER!”
“I’VE LOVED WORKING ON THIS PROJECT, I’VE LEARNT A LOT ABOUT MODERN-DAY SLAVERY AND GOT TO KNOW SOME NEW COLLEAGUES”
“GREAT PROJECT, I WOULD LIKE TO DO MORE”
“I WOULD LOVE TO WORK WITH YOU IN THE FUTURE ON SOME SIMILAR PROJECTS :)”
Just Enough’s CSR project, (recently launched with John Lewis Oxford Street) is a community-based initiative designed to engage businesses in social awareness of the modern slavery issue, and encourages pro-activity in their local communities beyond the immediate requirements of the day to day running of the company. Staff are trained in workshop sessions designed for children aged 9-11 and deliver these in local schools with the support of Just Enough UK trained facilitators. These workshops involve setting a competition for all the participating children to design a poster to raise awareness on modern slavery. The project works with various schools within the local community. The initiative culminates in an unveiling event of the winning posters where company staff, Just Enough UK facilitators, children, parents and teachers are invited to celebrate the children’s work.
The project is designed to develop new skills within company staff members including public speaking, group management, expression, improvisation, active listening, confidence and body language. They are able to realise their natural capabilities, create and deliver an understood and inspirational message and engage with the younger generation. The project enables companies to strengthen links with their communities, encourages different employees to work together and support one another and raises awareness of the company’s social responsibility, thus encouraging ongoing pro-activity in this arena.
The project is flexible for each business depending on:
- Number of staff interested in participating
- Number of schools in the area
- Number of schools business would like to sponsor
