Our Community

In the UK, Royal Mail is a truly national business that reaches people on a local level.

We have a presence in every community. We connect customers and companies across these communities, making commerce happen and increasing prosperity.

Our community strategy is focused on enhancing this contribution to the UK economy by linking our role as an employer to targeted community investment. We align our activities with the central goals of our business strategy and the interests of our people.

Our strategy is to connect and contribute to our communities in the following ways:

Leverage our national scale.

Our charity partner programme focusses our national scale around a singular cause chosen by our people, to which we can make a measurable difference.

Use our local presence.

Our Missing People partnership uses our presence in communities to help find vulnerable, at-risk people of all ages. Our Community Support and payroll giving schemes support the causes our people feel passionate about.

Unlock potential through education.

Our online magazine Teachers Post, provides classroom resources. Our partnership with The Prince’s Trust enables the Trust to support young people with mental health problems.
