FirstGroup has grown to become one of the largest international transport groups in the world. We have more than 124,000 employees and transport around 2.5 billion passengers per year. Every day, millions of people rely on us to connect communities and make their lives easier.
Despite the scale and diversity of our company, our operations are locally focused. Our relationship with our local communities is therefore very important to us and an essential part of supporting the growth of our business.
Our community programmes allow us to work with local authorities and community organisations, supporting initiatives that deliver a wide range of community benefits.
In this section you can read about our approach to community investment and how we align our community programmes with our broader business objectives.
This section describes our main community programmes and our corporate charity partnerships.
In this section we provide case study examples of some of our current charitable initiatives and community activities across the UK and North America.
