Our world better
We know that, together, we can make our world better. Each year, our staff volunteer for projects that support global good causes and that give something back to our local community.
Our raised funds have gone to charities such as Cancer Council, Red Nose Day, Save the Children, The Trussell Trust, MapAction, Macmillan, Oxfam, Age UK, Philippines Typhoon Appeal, WinterComfort and Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.
The aim of the Missing Maps Project is to map the most crisis-prone parts of the world.
1Spatial are involved in running events for volunteers to help map the Mamou Region in Guinea. Our efforts are currently supporting the Guinea Red Cross (GRC) develop integrated, high quality development programmes in the region.
