As a socially responsible company, we consciously strive to have a positive impact on society, the environment, and the economy.  Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy focuses on three main areas.




Compliance / Business Ethics

We recognise the need to protect the natural environment and keep it clean and unpolluted, following best practices in terms of limiting our impact on the environment.  Apart from legal obligations, we proactively seek to protect the environment through our implemented initiatives.

Our employees and clients are part of the SGWM ‘society’ and we’re are all part of wider societies in our localities and further afield. We’ve broken this into two broad areas:

• Health & Welfare of Staff

• Community

We’re committed to operating legally and with a conscience and have a willingness to observe both our own company values, and those of the community in which we exist.

Charity and Sponsorships

We have an 'in-house' CSR Committee who share a short list of proposed charities to our staff each year, giving them the opportunity to vote on the charity they would prefer to receive SGWM support. 

Staff can propose any charity they would like including in the survey and support can be financial via direct donations - in lieu of Christmas cards to clients, for example - or through activities or events with which they can get directly involved.

The organisations we currently support are:


Norwich Theatre

As staunch supporters of the arts in our community, we are delighted to be a Corporate Sponsor of Norwich Theatre!

This fantastic, registered charity and not-for-profit organisation has a long legacy of providing performances that inspire, enrich and entertain audiences of all ages and backgrounds. With its fabulous programme, excellent hospitality facilities and the networking opportunities it offers throughout the year, we're very proud of our partnership.

The Matthew Project

The Matthew Project - who are also our Norwich office 'next door neighbours' - empower young people and adults  across Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex to overcome drugs, alcohol, and mental health issues so they can live their lives more fully. They also offer specialist services for both family members impacted by others’ substance misuse and for veterans. 

Ipswich Rugby Club

Founded in 1870, Ipswich Rugby Club has over 800 members with teams across all ages. 

Not only have we sponsored the club since 2016, we are also sponsor of the Ipswich RFC Academy.  The Academy was set up to maximise the potential of all Junior, Youth and Colts players from under 6 right through to 18 and we thoroughly enjoy watching how these talented young players develop!

Rick Bowden Photography

Each year, our CSR Committee identifies a new artist to support and enter into a sponsorship/licensing agreement with, allowing us to provide a fresh look to our marketing literature and website whilst also giving some exposure.  This can be any art style and from anyone - whether established, amateur or student.

This year we have once again chosen ​​​​​​​Rick Bowden a local photographer who specialises in landscape photography.

You can see his stunning photographs of Norfolk and Suffolk throughout our website, in Vision magazine, and on some of our other marketing literature and communications.
