At Ensafe we are proud to support a range of good causes, charities, sporting clubs and associations from a
grass roots level to nationwide.

SAINTS
Ensafe are proud sponsors of Northampton Saints. Enthusiasm, flexibility, support and integrity – values shared by Northampton Saints who we are long-term supporters of. Like the Saints we believe is delivering a premiership performance every time, we work hard, play hard and have a sense of humour and fun. We also regularly provide sponsorship support for individual Saint’s players during the season.

THE DOREST DESTROYERS
We are proud to be long-term supporters of The Dorset Destroyers. This amazing wheelchair rugby team are an inspirational group of players who recently completed a
fundraising 26-hour marathon match.

ENTERPRISE ADVISER
At Ensafe we are dedicated to providing support and opportunities for the wider community via a number of initiatives. Through his role as a Regional Council Member for the CBI East Midlands and a member of the CBI Enterprise Forum, Ensafe’s Managing Direct Greg Kirkman became a CEC Enterprise Advisor with the Careers & Enterprise Company.

As a member of the SEND Forum, formed by the Careers and Enterprise Company, Greg also sits on the Northamptonshire Business and Enterprise forum and is very committed towards closing the skills gap across all sectors, particularly in construction, alongside inspiring students in local schools to look at and understand all of
the jobs available in construction. Particularly the importance of STEM subjects for engineering roles and higher level apprenticeships.

FRIARS ACADEMY
At Ensafe we are passionate about supporting local schools and providing opportunities for students of all abilities. We are proud to support Friars Academy, which is a special school for secondary age students with autism, learning difficulties and disabilities.

We work together with Friars Academy to raise awareness and explore opportunities for students as statistics reveal only 6% of people with a learning disability are in paid employment and more thant 65% of people with a disability want to be. We recognise young people with

learning difficulties can and do make a valuable contribution to the economy. In conjunction with Friars Academy deputy headteacher, Mark Adams and Ensafe Managing Director Greg Kirkman, a number of initiatives are in place to support students.

Greg visits the academy and meets with prefects and the student council to talk about CV development and encourages former academy students returning to present and inspire year 11 pupils. Working together future projects include a full developed Alumni, structured calendar of visits/engagement activities with students and local employers, business breakfast with local industries so they can see Friars Academy in action plus residential and education development in Northamptonshire.
