Ford & Slater Logo April 2016


Ford & Slater is one of the largest DAF Trucks dealership groups in the UK, operating from 10 dealerships strategically located across the East Midlands and East Anglia with over 450 employees.

Corporate and Social responsibility plays an important role at Ford & Slater and we are committed to contributing to local and business communities both as a firm and as individuals.

 Our main aims are:

  • To benefit our local communities and improve the environment
  • To engage with, and gain a better understanding of, the communities we work and live in
  • To encourage team spirit here at Ford & Slater and to have fun!

In 2008, we joined up with Leicestershire Cares, an initiative of Business in the Community. These connections have seen our workforce become involved in a wide number of initiatives, including:

  • Go for Reading
  • Collect for Christmas
  • Interview techniques
  • Volunteering projects
  • And much more…

Now in our 9th year as Leicestershire Cares members, we have taken part in over 20 challenges.

Jackie Penney, Leicestershire Cares Coordinator at Ford & Slater, commented, “Leicestershire Cares make such an enormous difference within the community and the help they give to organisations, schools and individuals is inspiring. I am immensely proud to be associated with this charity and thoroughly enjoy all aspects of the voluntary work I am involved in.”
