Corporate Social Responsibility
Here at TDSi, being a responsible corporate citizen is a commitment made at all levels of the company.
It is important to each and every one of us as and is not just a top-down commitment. Through charitable giving and volunteering the TDSi team have built a wide range of relationships across Dorset, the UK and worldwide all while fundraising hundreds of pounds for worthy causes.
For 2015/2016 we are supporting local charity Julias House!
As part of its commitment to the local community, Poole-based Integrated security manufacturer TDSi has chosen the Dorset and Wiltshire Children's Hospices charity Julia's House (registered charity number 1067125) to be the main beneficiary of its 2015 fundraising activities.
TDSi is proud to support worthy charities and Julia's House is exactly the kind of organisation it likes to support, as Managing Director John Davies commented, “As a Dorset-based company we have strong ties to the local community and organisations, so we like to contribute as much as possible. Julia's House is a very popular choice with the TDSi team, a charity which helps life-limited children and their families across the area by offering invaluable support and respite sessions.”

2014-2015 - TDSi supports the Boo Charity
During 2013/2014 TDSi supported the Boo Charity. The aim of ‘Boo’ is to help African children who are disadvantaged through economic poverty. Projects include the provision of food, shelter, healthcare, education, life-skills and emotional support. The overriding principle & ethos of ‘Boo’ is to provide children with care, whilst nurturing and developing opportunities to lift them from poverty so that they no longer need to rely on charity.
To fundraise for the Boo Charity TDSi were involved in the 20/20 Challenge, 20 local businesses in Dorset who all pledged to raise £1000 each.
December 2014 - Wave 105's Mission Christmas
The staff at TDSi got involved in Wave 105's Mission Christmas campaign by buying an extra christmas present which was given to a disadvantaged child for christmas 2014.
November 2014 - The Great TDSi Bake Off
Staff at the Poole headquarters emulated the hit TV programme by holding a Bake Off challenge of their own in aid of The Boo Charity. Competing staff produced cakes and other sugary treats which were then judged by a panel of tasters from the company. With the remainder of staff making donations to taste the delicious Bake Off results, the company raised £45.
Product and Marketing Manager, Sarah Phillips, who was also one of the Bake Off judges commented, “The event is the latest of a number of fundraising activities we have planned to support this very worthy cause Boo aims to offer opportunities (through education and practical assistance) for some of the poorest children in Africa, rather than simply donating money. As well as raising money for Boo, the prospect of delicious home-baked cakes was naturally a popular one with the TDSi team! We are very much looking forward to the next set of fund-raising activities.”
September 2014 - Drench the Directors
A TDSi spin off of the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' Directors Adam Norris, Alan Hardy, Mike Sussman and Alan Burgess bravely took part in the ‘Drench the Directors’ event at our HQ recently to raise money for The Boo Charity 2020 Challenge. The directors let their colleagues drench them with water in front of the team to raise money for the worthy cause.
