Corporate Social Responsibility - Services to the Community

The Home Club's foundation was to create business for the benefit of communities. 


The Home Club' Services to the Community is about supporting initiatives that are both already positively impacting many people’s lives within our Communities and assisting with the development of new initiatives as The Home Club promotes and supports collaboration, communication and widening impact by raising awareness of existing programmes. 


The Home Club connects organisations and individuals who, when combined, will become stronger, more conscious and respectful of each other, having a greater benefit to society. 


Ultimately, the goal is to enable a more socially mobile society to be inclusive and supportive to each Community and to develop a positive environment for everyone wanting to achieve more for their future and for the world around them. This applies not just to those of us today but also for future generations, and of all age groups regardless of ethnicity, gender, culture or background. 


In doing this, we will together, create a higher level of competitive advantage for UK businesses while accelerating the path to opportunity for everyone willing to work hard for a better future.


Below is a walk through of The Home Club's intent and pledge to equally distribute 50% of all of The Home Club's company gross profits to Borough(s) where the funds came from.

Her own words below tell of how she felt from the experience, which developed into what is now known as: 1729 Club,

  

Mentor Entrepreneur - 2017

“I am a 25 year old German National studying business in London. I was introduced to Darren via * as I want to become a leading female entrepreneur but just didn't know how or where to begin or how to be an Entrepreneur.


Darren, via his company The Home Club and his company gave me this opportunity and agreed to mentor me as part of his company’s new, ‘Entrepreneurial Apprenticeship Initiative.’ Darren’s mentoring program helped me to realize crucial details that will guide me to develop myself in order to have a successful career. He showed me how to think critically at every step. As a student, you do not realize how important these stages are in a process of building a business as an Entrepreneur. People mention Networking, it all the time, but because it seems a daily routine, you simply stop paying attention to keeping shaping it. Darren’s great experience and creativity gave me a better vision about how to study clients to satisfy their expectations and necessities, then how to give back showing added value in business. Darren also motivated me to ‘dream big’, be innovative, create blue oceans and transform communities. A business is not just about making money anymore, but to be able to reshape the future. Nowadays, I have stronger and more compelling understanding of business and importantly how to be a successful Entrepreneur, so that when I complete my business studies and begin my business project, then it will be much more solid than before. Having the theory and a close look at the practice, gives me a great advantage. 

Now it is my turn to put into practice what I have learned. Darren’s Apprentice Entrepreneurs program does not leave me here but will also give further guidance and support throughout my Entrepreneurial Journey. Neither Darren nor The Home Club has charged me a penny for mentoring me and has taken a considerable time from their schedule, introducing me into the business and entrepreneurial marketplace. 

I actually loved it!”
