We support local charities in sponsored community activities, campaigns, and events with our sites based in both Reading and Stoke-on-Trent.
Take a look at a handful of some of our charity partners below.
SSAFA are the leading armed forces charity, governed by a board of Trustees, committed to supporting anyone who has had a military career. With a team of over 5,000 volunteer welfare advisors, SSAFA is committed to working with anyone that needs support. Whether this is financial assistance, addiction or mental health struggles, SSAFA is driven to help those in their forces family get their lives back to where they need it to be.
SecureCloud+ have delivered care packages to members of the charity, to help them through the COVID-19 pandemic. These care packages included face masks, hand sanitisers, stress balls, even office stationery. Most staff at SecureCloud+ are from Reading and have grown up in the area, and supporting this local charity is one of the company’s core values to ensure they are giving back to the community.
Reading Association for the Blind
The Reading Association for the Blind (RAB) have supported visually-impaired people in Reading for around 140 years. People that suffer from vision impairments often struggle with isolation and find it difficult to leave their homes. RAB are passionate about helping people with sight impairments live full lives, allowing them to participate in activities, from social outings and theatre trips to playing sports and learning new skills.
To support RAB’s continued efforts to provide fun, interactive activities for their service users, SecureCloud+ replaced their legacy IT systems with modern, easy-to-use software and refurbished laptops. SecureCloud+ also provided care packages for users to help them through the pandemic, a challenging period of isolation for many. This charity holds a special place in the hearts of many staff here and are a wonderful initiative.
Combat Stress are a charity that work tremendously in helping ex-servicemen and women with mental health struggles, from anxiety and depression to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Veterans aged between 18 and 97 are all currently being treated by Combat Stress’ free-of-charge service, providing a vital lifeline for them and their families who don’t often get the appropriate medical help they need.
SecureCloud+ have taken part in many fundraising activities in support of Combat Stress, including a 75-mile cycling challenge known as 'Ride To Victory' raising an incredible £5,388 - all in aid of commemorating VJ Day in August 2020. SecureCloud+ take pride in our veterans and members of the armed forces community.

The trust helps them achieve their full potential through community fundraising events and youth engagement programmes.
