PHAST is a social enterprise, which means that we are not for profit and that our patrons and directors give their time for free. We keep our costs as low as possible for clients whilst supplying high quality work.
In every project we build in a very small contingency fund which if not used goes to support new developments for clients to support a number of different charities.
Each year PHAST decides how to donate the small surplus we have. We give priority to the charities that our directors and associates support both through fund raising and often by taking time to work for in the charities between their project and training work.
We believe that this is fulfilling our social mission and we are very proud of and grateful to the associates who give so freely of their time to charities in UK and internationally.
Here are some examples of our work.
