Building thriving communities

What community means to us

We think about community in its broadest sense. Each of us is part of the Tate & Lyle employee community and the communities of other stakeholders we work with such as our customers, suppliers and partner organisations.

We’re also part of the local communities where we live and work, and we want everyone in those communities to have the opportunity to achieve their potential. 


We have set ourselves three targets to build thriving communities by 2025

Promoting inclusion and diversity

Our community partnerships

Our partners include registered charities, educational institutions and non-governmental agencies that meet our high standards for delivering services and results.

We plan and budget for our community programme annually. If you are a registered charity who would like to tell us more about your work and projects, please see our Giving Guidelines for Charitable Partners.

Education: STEM grants

We’re passionate about inspiring students to explore careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and our STEM-focused grants are intended to do just that.
