We employ around 100 staff from around the North East of England. We believe it’s only right that we support our local community and beyond! Here at JR Holland, we enjoy giving back, especially to the organisations that we do.

Children North East

Growing up can be hard! That’s why at J.R. Holland we continuously show our support to the North East of England’s very own children’s charity. Children North Eat have been transforming the lived of disadvantaged children and young people since 1891. Back then, the charity was originally called ‘Poor Children’s Holiday Association’, where they chose to give people “a hand up, not a hand out”. 

Nowadays, Children North East ensure children and young people grow up happy and healthy in their family, school and communities.
