RTF Networks is proud to support national and local charitable and community causes.
We actively demonstrate our commitment through taking part and hosting fundraising events and activities, and with gifts in kind.
In previous years, we have supported Macmillan, MS and Dementia, and sponsored Splash Paws, a Canine Hydrotherapy and Rehabilitation centre.
In 2017, RTF Networks are proud to announce that we will be supporting the charity YoungMinds – The voice for young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
This cause has a special place in a lot of RTF Networks employee’s hearts. We are very much looking forward to not only raising money for such an amazing cause but also to raise awareness of the effects Mental Health has on young lives and how easy it is for it to go unnoticed. We want to help these amazing young children on the road to recovery and help stop them suffering in silence.
