We're proud to take an active role in our community

Supporting our local community has always been at the heart of Paymentshield. That’s why, each year, we give our employees the opportunity to vote for a local charity they’d like to support as our charity of the year. So far, we’ve helped raise over £50,000 for some amazing local charities over the years including a hospice, a primary school and a heart screening charity.

Our charity of the year - Queenscourt Hospice

Queenscourt Hospice is a local charity that provides support for the people of West Lancashire, Southport and Formby. They care for patients with serious illnesses, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life at each new stage.

Volunteering days

We believe volunteering is a great way for employees to develop communication and leadership skills as well as building relationships within teams.

Our employees take pride in supporting our local community and they tell us that it’s one of the things that makes Paymentshield a great place to work.

All of our employees are entitled to one day paid leave per year to volunteer in their local community every year.
