Our charity partner
CBI South West has nominated ASTRiiD as it’s charity of the year.
ASTRiid's mission is to help people with long term, chronic illness find meaningful work. Set up by our dear friend and CBI colleague David Shutts OBE in the wake of his cancer diagnosis, Astriid believes that value of work is far more than the wages that are paid. Work provides normality, routine, challenges and rewards and help gives its members a positive mental attitude. ASTRiiD helps bridge the gap between the Invisible Talent Pool (i.e. the cadre of people who have long term chronic illness but who still wish to use their skills and experience in work) and the UK skills crisis.

 We are grateful for the support of our partners:
