Our achievements so far include:

  • half of all places of worship in Poole promote and use Fairtrade products
  • over 40 per cent of primary and secondary schools (four of which are officially Fairtrade schools) teach pupils about Fairtrade
  • the RNLI college is a flagship employer supporting Fairtrade.
Poole's Fairtrade steering group meets regularly and comprises:
  • BCP Council
  • Bournemouth and Poole College
  • RNLI College
  • Poole Chaplaincy
  • Poole Grammar School
  • Poole Housing Partnership
  • Poole Methodist Church.
