Supporting local initiatives
John Laing is committed to supporting employee engagement with charitable initiatives, and during 2020 our employees participated in a number of activities including:
Improving opportunities for the youth
We continued to support the Clontarf Foundation in Australia which improves the education, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men. In August, our team were invited to visit Clontarf Academy in South Grafton High School to see Clontarf’s work since the Academy began.
Our employees also took part in personal fundraising initiatives to support Muscular Dystrophy, Movember and the KidsOut Giving Tree which provided Christmas presents to children in refuge.
In February, seven teams from across our regions took part in the Future Steps Challenge to walk at least 10,000 steps-a-day to raise money for the Prince’s Trust
