We are Community Investors for Heart of Bucks
Framework Digital have become a Community Investor, financially supporting the community where we work, safe in the knowledge that Heart of Bucks has the local expertise to maximise the funds and the impact that they make in Bucks.
About Heart of Bucks
Working in partnership with individuals, businesses and public sector organisations, Heart of Bucks provides a variety of grant programmes for charities and community groups in Buckinghamshire. An array of different projects and organisations have received funding since Heart of Bucks awarded their first grant in 2000 – from cancer support groups, befriending services and counselling sessions to support children with additional needs, rough sleepers or ex-offenders.
Being a community investor
Heart of Bucks works with its donors, like us, to make our community a better place to live, work, play, and do business. We have invested in their Community Investor fund supporting three local issues: poverty and isolation, young people, and the environment. We are fortunate to work in the centre of Aylesbury on Walton Street, meaning we have many close links in the local community and see the impact of the changing environment around us.
Henry Allmand, Chief Executive, invited Tomas Pukalski, Framework Digital’s Director, to be an investor in this fund, knowing it would be interesting to us as a company.
Heart of Bucks have also featured Tomas in their “Inspiring Buckinghamshire” series in this article “Tomas Pukalski – Inspiring Buckinghamshire”. In the article, Tomas shared his greatest hopes for the future of Buckinghamshire:
“To create educational opportunities for children and for adults that are more diverse and better suited for the digital age.”
“Anticipate technology’s and climate’s inevitable impact on our lives and work on plans to prevent families from being left behind, beyond help and completely disengaged.”
Our values are all closely linked to the local community and our heart as a business itself. Social Responsibility, Environmental Sustainability, Accessibility, Partnership and being current in the field of web design are what we are all about. Have a full read of Our Values in this article about our recent rebranding.
We provide placements to students at local schools and colleges, including students studying T Level placement at Aylesbury College, and our Director Tomas is often seen giving talks in local educational settings such as Aylesbury College, helping to shape their curriculum.
As you can see, education and young people is at the heart of our social responsibility, bringing in the new generation of developers in such a fast-changing industry. We are proud to help to provide young people with equal opportunities and chances to get into the workforce and live healthy lives.
We are proud to be involved and wish Heart of Bucks the best with this fund, and also with the newly brought in Young Future’s Fund, which we think is inspirational.
