Tandem Bank has announced it has changed its charity partnerships program in 2024 with a commitment to support five charities across its offices. The bank also wants to encourage involvement rather than just financial support and will provide employees with two days of paid volunteering annually. It will also target 1 million minutes of volunteering by 2026.

Tandem CEO, Alex Mollart, said: “I’m delighted to officially announce our newly revamped charity programme. We’ve done some great work in supporting some great causes over the past, but I’m excited that the new Tandem can have a more coordinated approach and one that touches on more charities with five partners.

“What’s important is that these partners have been selected by our staff,  the ones which matter to them and with our support can punch above their weight in terms of impact, with many offering vital lifelines in the community.

“The team’s already started 2024 with a bang, but we’ve got big ambitions and I’m proud that we can encourage them further with paid volunteering days, a business-wide target of 1 million minutes and our new roadshows and prizes.”
