Simply amazing! Wates people have organised, participated, attended and raised funds for a host of worthy causes. Wates Giving is proud to have helped them achieve their targets through individual awards and match funding. We offer match funding and a Give As You Earn scheme. We also make Community Grants in support of organisations put forward by our people and sports sponsorship for employees or their direct family members who compete at a national level. If you are a Wates employee, check out the intranet for more information.
