Charitable giving has been integral to AQ’s ethos since the company was founded; we believe in building a better society and have always sought out ways to achieve that. For the past five and a half years, we have supported numerous charities through gift donations on behalf of our placed candidates. As AQ has grown, so have the number of charities we’ve supported, giving to hundreds of organisations each year. However, to have a greater impact, we have chosen to support a specific group of organisations which were chosen by our team.
Alongside our longstanding partnership with the Rio Ferdinand Foundation, we will support the following charities in the climate, disability, health and education sectors and hope our donations will continue to help make a better society.
