Social responsibility describes the way we’re trying to make a difference through our coaching, teaching, research, public events and activities.
Social responsibility is an important aspect of Birkdale Collective’s company goals, sitting alongside our commitment to coaching in an ethical and high quality way.
We endeavour to set the standard for social responsibility in the career coaching sector and we are open to collaboration and discovering new ways of support using our skills.
Below are Birkdale Collective’s current and past activities in this area.
