IFSD in the community

Across Glasgow, companies and individuals working in the financial and business services sector are doing great things in their local communities.

Whether it's fund raising to help important local charities, voluntary work to help vital community programmes or mentoring local pupils and students, the range of activities is truly impressive. There is always scope for more organisations and individuals to get involved in their local communities so IFSD Glasgow has set up this dedicated page to profile some great examples of work in the community and hopefully inspire others to get involved.
