Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an integral part of Gatehouse. We are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate and in line with our commercial approach, we take an ethical approach to our activities and support a range of not-for-profit organisations.

The Bank also believes in the importance of supporting a range of not-for-profit endeavours. It aims to work with organisations in the local community with a focus on education and social welfare in order to create sustainable and long-term social enhancements. In this regard and given our Shariah construct, the Bank has opportunity to provide training and guidance on Shariah principles and Islamic finance.

The Bank’s employees are encouraged to invest time to support projects which support the young in our local communities. Gatehouse has been supporting Mosaic, a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, since 2008 and provides time for employees who wish to volunteer, to make a difference to society and help make the mentoring programmes managed by Mosaic a success. We are proud to have become a Silver Patron of Mosaic in 2016.

Mosaic delivers mentoring programmes in primary and secondary schools and in prisons. The mentoring programmes are designed to help those from disadvantaged communities to realise their potential with the support of volunteer mentors.
