Environmental Action Award 2013

Volvox Group won the BVCA Community and Environment Action Award in 2013, which recognised the company as the best Private Equity or Venture Capital backed management team with a community and environmental impact in the UK.

As well as responsibilities to its shareholders, customers and employees, Volvox felt a responsibility to the disabled and underprivileged in society. The Group has played as significant part in the development of the Hollybank Trust, based in Huddersfield. Hollybank supports and educates over one hundred children and adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities in their special school which was awarded outstanding by Ofsted, residential homes and adult daytime activities programme, where they nurture and help them reach their potential. Should they wish to stay, Hollybank can offer pupils a place for life. Through the Volvox management team’s contacts, Hollybank has also had tremendous support from the professional community in Leeds.

“We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of Volvox which has worked tirelessly over the years to support us and our work. Their donations enable us to continue to provide quality of life for life for our children, young people and adults.”
