Our UK Programmes

The GFG Foundation currently works collaboratively with other Not For Profits and GFG Alliance companies in both supporting and delivering a wealth of different programmes, for example visiting schools to talk about engineering, or supporting science festivals such as in Edinburgh.

The GFG Foundation is currently adopting existing local Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes run by GFG Alliance companies. You can read more about these programmes in the ‘our locations’ area of this website.
