At Askew Brook we take our community responsibilities very seriously, we’re part of where we live and very much want to give back. We regularly host meet-ups, hold conferences and can be found working in our community.
Working with schools, colleges and Universities is one of the most enjoyable parts of our work at Askew Brook. We’re the only micro-business to be recognised as a Cornerstone Employer by the The Careers & Enterprise Company in our Opportunity Area. These are target areas for government to focus on social mobility - statistically youngsters in Scarborough struggle to progress into work and/or further education compared to other areas.
Like education, sport is important to a local community and plays a key role in raising aspirations of young people. As a result, we sponsor Scalby Cricket Club and Scarborough Athletic FC in Scarborough as well as Clowne Town Cricket Club in Chesterfield.
