In 2008, they set up the Urban Splash Charitable Trust. The overall ambition for the trust is to be involved with local organisations and charities that are poorly funded. It was set up to fund projects related to deprived communities, the arts and urban regeneration. The trust is funded from the profits of the Urban Splash Group. At the moment, the main activity of the trust is the operation of a scheme whereby each member of staff can nominate his or her favourite charity to receive a donation of up to £100 in any one year. Staff often request help with sponsored events in which they are personally taking part.
