Community Engagement

Being a part of Canterbury

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Canterbury is a wonderful City full of energy and hosts an incredibly diverse and bustling community; one that Paul Roberts and his family have had the enjoyment of being a part of for over 50 years.

This is why at Paul Roberts & Associates we love being a part of current projects and events within the Canterbury hub and it is hugely important to us to back local charities and other support networks whose mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of Canterbury’s residents. Healthy people are happy people and happy people enrich Canterbury as a whole.

We’ve supported our local community throughout our 25 year history because we know that vibrant communities are essential for our success.

We have confidence knowing now that we are a brand that employees are proud to work for and that customers can trust.

Here is just a snippet of how Paul Roberts and Associates has contributed to the local community of Canterbury:
