Amey is celebrating 15 years in partnership with the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), a national charity that supports veterans and people with disabilities through employment and training.
RBLI’s social enterprises, Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company and Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company have produced over 26,000 road and rail signs for Amey since 2008.
Amey marked the anniversary with a visit to Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, inviting both Amey and RBLI veterans to attend and share their stories and ideas on how to strengthen the partnership.
We have spent over £4.3m with the RBLI and its social enterprises, contributing more than £730k in social value to the economy. 100% of the surplus generated by the RBLI’s commercial activity is re-invested to either provide further employment opportunities to veterans or support the wider charity’s aims of providing welfare, housing, and employment to the country’s most vulnerable veterans.
The 15 year partnership has enabled the RBLI to create five more employment opportunities every year through its social enterprises to veterans and people with disabilities.
The movement to buy social creates a better environment and financial position for so many people across the country, impacting positively on society and enriching lives.
We will continue to work with the RBLI to build on the partnership further, taking all feedback from the celebration event and putting actions in place.
