Artic participates in several community support initiatives on a local and regional basis with official charities and sponsorship agreements. We support and participate in fundraising events for the following charities:-

  • Bexley Hospice
  • Dreams Come True
  • Mindout
  • Darent Valley Hospital
  • Kings College Hospital
  • Charity

We sponsor Cray Valley FC and a group of other local Kent football clubs in providing better opportunities and facilities for young players to develop their footballing skills. Putting time and money into our local community and promoting better outcomes for young boys and girls. On a wider scale, we have a sponsorship agreement with the RAF Motorsport Association to support their F2 sidecar team in the British championship. This sponsorship also spreads across the RAF STEM organisation which works to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics disciplines to schools and colleges across the country. Using the race bikes and cars from the RAFMSA, we set up STEM days at local schools/colleges to explain how careers can be forged in engineering including facilities management in tandem with the RAF recruitment teams talking about RAF engineering careers. These events are aimed at promoting engineering as a career to young people which will hopefully establish a stream of new FM engineers into the future and aid young people in making the best of their life opportunities.
