Page 6: Conclusion
It is accepted today that large organisations like Abbey National have wider responsibilities. Abbey National recognises the importance of developing a strong and well focused community partnership programme. Such programmes need to be targeted at areas of community involvement where there will be the greatest possible benefits both for the organisation and the community. In the case of Abbey National, the most logical areas for the company to channel resources into at the present moment in time are disability, education and employment. The methods adopted should support involvement of staff at every level in their communities and empower them with access to resources of time and money to do this.
