AV Dawson understands how important the local community is to its business and is committed to supporting the needs of the area and its people. To fulfil this pledge it sponsors a number of charities, groups and community initiatives throughout the region.
AV Dawson is a patron of Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation which delivers a number of great campaigns, tackling issues from apprenticeships to homelessness, including a number of fund raising challenges, in which AV Dawson's own Managing Director, Gary Dawson, has taken part.
One area where AV Dawson has a particularly keen interest is in supporting Teesside's young people, as they are the future of the region. AV Dawson does this in a number of ways, through providing apprentices and jobs across its business to its membership with the High Tide Foundation, ensuring young people are equipped with practical workplace skills. AV Dawson also understands the importance of learning outside of the workplace and sponsors a local sports team, Hutton Rudby Junior Cricket Club, where the players can learn the importance of teamwork and social interaction.
