All of us at WORKHORSE GROUP are committed to helping reduce our carbon footprint and helping our environment. We were delighted and proud to start this journey off in our local community by supporting both Essex Wildlife Trust and Suffolk Wildlife Trust.
Since then our involvement, and that of our team. covers environmental investment via Ecologi, local community help, signing the Armed Forces Covenant, supporting grass and professional sport and the launching of our own WORKHORSE GENERATION Charity Hub set up to help amazing charities that help the next generation of workforce.
Please stay tuned to this page to follow our journey as we endeavour to strengthen our sustainability and recycling credentials and environmental best practice as well as further supporting valued local charities and contributors.

WORKHORSE GENERATION - Charity Hub
As a family run removal and storage group, WORKHORSE GROUP understand the importance of family and community. Following decades of service to their communities they have also recognised the vital need for support and help from within them.
The inherent need to support and believe in the next working generation is not just a concern for WORKHORSE GROUP, it is an issue shared by businesses across the UK as well as young people and their families.
Supporting the generation of tomorrow is so important but complicated. The charity hub, WORKHORSE GENERATION, is effectively a one stop home of support for young adults whilst partnering with charities with the one shared vision to push the inspirational projects that help tomorrow’s generation. As a company we serve our community, and it is important for us to support and give back to it.
