Corporate Social Responsibility

At Horizon Platforms we recognise the importance of responsible business practice, keeping our workforce safe and healthy, providing outstanding service to our customers and contributing to the wider community. One of Horizon's main values is putting people first, and this is supported throughout the company.

Putting people first

Charity Support

As a company we are dedicated to supporting local charities and community services wherever we can. Our chosen charities are Wakefield Hospice and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and we focus our efforts to support both causes with charity days and events.


Horizon Platforms donates money to Wakefield Hospice every time our branded scissor lift is hired out.

Charitable Endeavours

In addition to our commitment to our chosen charities, Horizon team members are able to take one paid day per year to carry out volunteering work for a registered charity or local community service of their choice, or take part in an organised fundraising activity.

Our team has been involved in a variety of commendable activities from coast-to-coast bike rides to 15,000ft skydives. Our people are passionate about the charities and communities they support.

Just some of the charities our team has supported:

  • Pancreatic Cancer UK
  • Hospice UK
  • Cancer Research
  • Macmillan
  • Save the Children
  • Make-a-wish Foundation
