Ofsure recognises the importance that companies should place on Social Responsibility, as a result we are involved in two initiatives. Ofsure is the main sponsor of James Ketchell, an inspirational man who has achieved so much over the past few years in the face of adversity. Ofsure is also a key sponsor of Kindled Spirit, a newly formed charity focussing on raising awareness of the issue of human trafficking, especially children and supporting the victims of this crime against humanity.
