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, Engineering 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 the 'Get ready for winter' campaign.
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’re looking for our next charity partner
The Met Office is seeking applications from charities who would like to become our Corporate Charity for the next three years, beginning in August. The nominated charity will work with us to develop a relationship which focuses on mutual benefits for both organisations.
