KWS Defence community initiatives
KWS Defence is an active member of the communities we serve, providing both financial support and help-in-kind to a wide variety of different individuals and organisations across our region. These partnerships are of enormous importance to us in terms of forging stronger links with our customers and help make a tangible and positive difference to the quality of people's lives.
KWS Defence Charity of the Year 2012 - Canine Partners
Our Charity of the Year is Canine Partners. Their mission is to assist people with disabilities to enjoy a greater independence and a better quality of life and, where possible, to help them into education and employment through the provision of specially trained dogs for the disabled, whose well-being is a key consideration.
We also support the following charities due to our involvement with the defence and water sectors:
Scotty's Little Soldiers
Scotty's Little Soldiers is dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed in action while serving with the British Armed Forces. The charity provides treats, trips and activities for families of the fallen with the aim of offering a respite, however brief, from the daily ups and downs of coping without a loved one.
WaterAid is an international non governmental organisation who's mission is to transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities.
