Our Community – ASOS plc
Our community programmes focus on creating opportunities that help young adults truly achieve their potential.
Most of our community work takes place in the UK, particularly around the four areas where we employ the most people (London, Hemel Hempstead, Barnsley and Birmingham). We also support projects overseas in Kenya (where the ASOS Made in Kenya range is manufactured) and India (where some product and IT suppliers are based).
The ASOS Foundation provides infrastructure, training and support to enable disadvantaged young adults reach their potential, through focused projects in the UK, India and Kenya. The ASOS Foundation works with long-term charity partners including the Prince's Trust and Centrepoint in the UK, SOKO Community Trust and Wildlife Works Carbon Trust in rural Kenya, and Udayan Care in New Delhi, India.

Can I fundraise or donate to the ASOS foundation?
We would welcome any donations or fundraising on behalf of the ASOS Foundation. If you are taking part in a challenge event and want to fundraise or simply want to donate to the ASOS Foundation, you can do so here.
Does the ASOS Foundation offer grants or bursaries?
The ASOS Foundation does not run a grant-making programme or currently offer bursaries.
Does the ASOS Foundation ever consider a ‘Charity of the year’ scheme?
No, the ASOS Foundation is committed to working with long-term charity partners.
I was delighted to attend the opening of our Udayan Care family home for 12 orphaned girls in India. The first of five homes planned, it was funded by the ASOS Foundation through the generosity of ASOS employees, suppliers and customers.
