We work with people and organisations around the world to try to improve environmental and labour standards, and have a positive impact on the lives we touch.
You can learn more about our people. You'll also find information in the Improving Lives section of our Sustainability Report, and in our Modern Slavery statement in the Resources section.
Our charity partnerships have always been close to our hearts. Through the Virgin Atlantic Foundation – our own charity which was setup in 2003 - we have raised over £9 million through our Change for Children onboard appeal. On top of this, our people fundraise over £100,000 every single year.
Given the realities of working with young people in a post-Covid-19 landscape, we are taking the opportunity to reflect on our community investment initiatives. As such, Virgin Atlantic and WE Charity have mutually agreed to terminate the partnership. We are proud of the impact we have made collectively and are incredibly grateful to our employees, customers, and the WE team for improving the lives of young people in the UK and around the world.
We are passionate about increasing engagement with STEM and raising aspirations for young people in our local communities. While we have this time to pause and reflect, we will consider how best to do this in the post-Covid landscape.
