Introducing

Wider Community

Wider Community is a charitable foundation set up by Wider Plan, the employee benefits provider. Wider Plan's passion is to make a tangible difference to working life.

We want to make even more of a difference by:

  • Promoting charitable activity in the workplace, improving staff morale, team-building and personal satisfaction.
  • Making it easier for individuals to support their favourite cause and to enjoy making an impact.
  • Helping employers recognise the commercial benefits of corporate social responsibility, to make a sustainable difference.

Together, we can assist your local community and make a difference through a shared Wider Community.
