Corporate Social Responsibility


Switched on to what’s important

Our commitment to good corporate social responsibility (CSR) makes more than good business sense.

It’s the means by which we roll out our business strategy and bring to life our values. And it’s how we’ll gradually and consistently improve performance.

So we’ve carefully defined our CSR along the following principles:

  • To minimise the impact and maximise the benefits that our work has on the environment and people around us.
  • To integrate our CSR considerations into all our business decisions.
  • To comply with, and exceed where practicable, all applicable legislation, regulations and codes of practice.
  • To review, annually report, and to continually strive to improve our CSR performance.

So we’ll continue to review and grow our policies, learning lessons and building on success along the way. What won’t change are our commitments to:

  • Community: We’ll continue to play an important role in the communities in which we operate and encourage and empower our people to help make those communities even better places in which to live and work.
  • People: We aim to find, support and develop great people, empowering them to enjoy and do their best work. Key to this is our training and development programmes, particularly our Gears, Apprenticeship and Leadership Development programmes. We’re also actively looking for ways in which to promote and increase diversity and embrace inclusivity.
  • Responsible Business: We actively engage in responsible trading and good environmental management. 

Just some of the ways we bring our CSR to life…

Halfords Academy

We work with prisoners in Onley Prison and Drake Hall Prison, training them to become professional cycle mechanics. Prisoners get to learn by working on bicycles handed in at participating stores and the refurbished bikes, along with new helmets, are donated to schools in disadvantaged areas.

Wherever possible, the best candidates get the opportunity to become Halfords colleagues when they leave prison.

Re-Cycle. Where bikes live on.

1000s of bikes from the UK are transforming lives in Africa…

Since 2013, we’ve been working with Re-Cycle to redress the balance between millions of bikes being thrown away or left to rust in sheds across the UK, and the millions of people in Africa have to walk for hours each day, often carrying heavy loads.

We also help Re-Cycle to raise vital funds and awareness across the UK and collect thousands of bikes through regular trade-in events, whilst Re-Cycle helps Halfords to connect with and inspire local communities, reduce bike waste and make a real impact through the power of bikes.
