Our community


We strive to have a positive impact on society and in the communities in which we work.

We engage with the community in a number of ways including:

  • Organising and hosting STEM events (Science, Technology, English and Maths) events and Science Camps each year to inspire young scientists of the future;
  • Making our head office building available for charities and community groups;
  • Organising public open days of our head office;
  • Engaging community and charity groups as part of 'Get ready for summer' and 'Get ready for winter' campaigns.

We also have a role in the broader global community through our work with the World Meteorological Organization and our involvement in the Voluntary Cooperation Programme. Operational, research and academic partnerships bring huge benefits to our science and services - and, ultimately, to the people they support.

Our corporate charity

We proudly support the RNLI in their mission to save lives at sea.
