Mobile phone giant mmO2 is looking for a new charity of the year.
The company is seeking submissions from organisations that tackle the root causes of youth crime and work on delivering long-term strategies to address the issue in local communities.
The mobile operator has launched its "Can Do in the Community" scheme to mark its first anniversary since changing name. The initiative aims to use the company's resources to set up community schemes and will encourage its employees to raise money for the selected charity.
David Varney, chairman of mmO2, said: "Through the Can Do in the Community programme we will support projects that focus on delivering sustainable benefits to the community, using our mobile and advanced technologies wherever possible.
"We believe that tackling youth crime is an area where we can really make an impact and one that is highly relevant to the industry we work in."
