The event on September 18 was designed to educate 47 employees, tasked with leading their divisions in citizenship objectives, on their role and the resources available.

The venue was Safeside in Birmingham, an experiential learning centre managed by West Midlands Fire Service and supported by Nationwide, which boasts a full-size indoor street scene. Delegates took part in focus groups on a bus, in a pub, bank, internet café and house, and on the village green.

The champions also heard from 17-year-old Kirsten Green, the daughter of a cancer patient. Supported by Nationwide’s flagship charity Macmillan, she provided an insight into living with cancer and the charity’s role.

Stephen Uden, head of corporate citizenship at Nationwide Building Society, said the event was a "huge success". He added: "Our objective for this event was to inspire, motivate and recognise our community champions from across the business and bring one of our projects to life for them."
