VISAV is based at the Sherwood Business Centre, which is centrally located  in Sherwood, a vibrant suberb within the city of Nottingham. But the Sherwood Business Centre is not just a suite of offices. They embrace Sherwood and Nottingham and support deserving community projects.

Take a look at some recent examples:

A friend of VISAV's Company Secretary, Adi Wood from Nottingham, is currently staying with his fiancée, who lives in Kielce, Poland, approximately 40 miles from the Ukrainian border. 

He was very keen to do something to help the Ukrainian refugees and, after an appeal by Lisa Douglas, £600 has been raised and transferred so far. 

Adi has been liaising with a local Polish charity and, with the financial donations he has received, has been  buying supplies for them to take to the border, as well as helping Ukrainian refugees who have arrived in Kielce in Poland. 

VISAV has donated £400 to the appeal and this will go a long way to buying desperately needed supplies for those in need.

As part of our community involvement VISAV Ltd are making a small player sponsorship for the local championship football team. This is also in consideration of the work that we have seen Nottingham Forest do in the community. 

We sponsor Keinan Vincent Joseph Davis, who is an English professional footballer playing as a forward for Nottingham Forest on loan from Premier League club Aston Villa.

VISAV Ltd were proud to support the Safer Cambridgeshire Policing Awards held on Friday 5 November. 

Sarah Cooper, Head of Cambridgeshire Police Corporate Communications told us, “It was our fourth awards ceremony to recognise officers and staff for the work they do day in and day out, to keep the people of Cambridgeshire safe - and we believe it was a great success! 

It was down your company's generosity, along with our other sponsors, in donating a prize to the event, that made the event as good as it was and enabled us to recognise the officers, staff and volunteers who attended the ceremony, in such a brilliant way.

After hearing about the devastating news about damage created by a thunderstorm to the building of Coventry Citizens Advice, VISAV offered to help with the repairs to the building.  Kate Algate, CEO said 'it was so stressful seeing water literally coming down from the ceilings and questioning how we were going to repair it. As a local charity, we struggle to secure funding for such events and it was a relief when VISAV said they would support us, especially at such a busy time when demand for our services are so high.'

The shareholders, Board of Directors and Employees at VISAV have a keen interest in helping our clients to keep people safe.  We do this every day by providing, developing and supporting over 10,000 Police, Fire & Rescue, Local authority, PCC and Volunteer administrators to connect with members registered on the Neighbourhood Alert system.

But beyond that we all take great pride in the social value projects we continue to support.  Over the years this has included:

  • COPS (Care of Police Survivors)
  • Community Garden project at St. Paulinus, New Ollerton, Nottinghamshire
  • Supporting vulnerable burglary victims by supplying and installing (free of charge) Ring doorbells for their peace of mind
  • Sherwood Sunset Calendar - proceeds distributed to local charities
  • Sherwood Food Exchange - at the start of lockdown one
  • Mesopotamia

From earlier articles you will see the huge and valued support that the VISAV team have been giving a Basford, Nottingham charity, Mesopotamia. The VISAV owners and Directors visited Mesopotamia last Saturday to help with the packing and wrapping of surprise gifts for local children who, otherwise, would not have a gift to open on Christmas Day. The VISAV team will then help the Mesopotamia team to deliver the presents on Wednesday, along with the families’ food parcels that VISAV have financially contributed towards.

In July we told you about VISAV Ltd supporting local charity, Mesopotamia. We are delighted to show you how our support will enable the charity to start collecting again for their charity shop and help them with their weekly food distributions.

Rachel Jackson, with the practical and financial support of Mike Douglas, VISAV's Product Director and Nottinghamshire Freemason, set up a food exchange in Sherwood during March, at the start of the panic buying because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rachel explained on the project's Facebook page, "We are a local exchange for local people! We are here to accept food donations or household items, and here for people to access food and household items they require. We are a non profit organization and rely upon your donations and good will!"
