Lancashire born and bred, we’re very proud of our roots at Apple Transcription.
So much so, we decided we should ‘put our money where our mouth is’ and do something about it…
Our team held a powwow and everyone agreed that some positive action to support our local community was long overdue.
But how could we help?
With the aim of tapping into what we could do to make a difference, our team spent days racking their brains and carrying out local research to see where help might be needed. After some serious soul-searching, drawing on our individual lives as well as our own personal and professional experience, we soon realised that the answer was staring us in the face all the time!
In our everyday work, we are involved with real people in the community who, through no fault of their own, experience crime, homelessness, domestic and other abuse and mental health problems, to name just a few.
Indeed, in previous voluntary roles, our team members have supported victims of abuse and other crime when bringing vital evidence to the law courts, they’ve volunteered in contact centres, and one was even appointed to the Magistracy.
