We are very proud to sponsor the recycling badges for Rainbows, inspiring this next generation to become recycling superheroes and help protect our planet. We’re sharing planet-saving tips about recycling and how best to prevent waste, especially when it comes to tech. And we’re showing how girls and women can use tech to make a positive difference.

The Chapter One initiative is a unique online programme that matches volunteers from businesses with children (aged 5-7) who need reading practice, particularly in deprived areas to boost children’s enjoyment of reading and spark their excitement about books. Chapter One is free to schools in the first year and harnesses technology through enabling a connection from the volunteer’s workplace or home to the children via the classroom.Find out more

Daisy employees all have skills that are transferrable into the STEM Ambassador Programme and can add great value by bringing real life experience and skills into the classrooms and clubs across the UK.
DCS is proud to support anyone within the business who is keen to influence and inspire those who need it most. Through our STEM Ambassadors Programme, anyone regardless of job role (not just ‘techies’ or ‘engineers’), is given the opportunity to act as role models for children in local communities by volunteering their time and skillsets to their local STEM Hubs and becoming fully-fledged STEM Ambassadors.Find out more
Enthuse STEM Partnership
Our partnership with Enthuse enables us to help target schools and colleges where our support can have the most impact and where collectively, we will help Enthuse meet its target of reaching 40,000 teachers and 4 million young people over the next five years.
Not only does this impact communities that may otherwise miss out on such a valuable and important resource, it also means that Daisy Corporate Services can play an integral part in building the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) pipeline on both local and national levels. In doing so, we are able to develop and improve employee skill sets through working with young people; develop relationships with potential future employees and apprentices, increase the business’s visibility of as an active STEM employer in the community, and make an important, positive contribution to social mobility.
For Daisy, this means we will develop a greater presence in primary and secondary schools in our communities that need the support and so our focus area centres around our head office in Nelson.Find out more

Sponsors take part in a regional 5-a-side football tournament in Spring 2024, with national finals in June. Headed up by our Head of Direct Sales, Tony Wright, who is supporting this project on and off the pitch, three Daisy teams are, “playing for change”, sponsoring 30 young people through the street soccer programme!
