This year we are supporting five charities close to our hearts, from children & young people with life-limiting conditions to unwanted and abused animals from impoverished communities.

At activpayroll we’re passionate about CSR and encourage all of our team members across the globe to get involved wherever they can. This can be something as simple as a bake sale in Edinburgh to bungee jumping from the tallest bridge in Africa.
