As well as being a higher educational institution, BCOM is also a registered charity in England and Wales (312907).
BCOM not only provides graduate and postgraduate osteopathic education but also provides access to osteopathic care to the community and promotes research in osteopathy.
The Student Hardship Fund was introduced to provide support for BCOM students in times of financial hardship.
As part of its green agenda BCOM recycles all of its waste materials. All of BCOM’s mixed waste is recycled or goes towards creating energy. This means that BCOM sends zero waste to landfill sites.
Harry Cowling, Facilities Manager at the College says: “At BCOM we all work together to make recycling a success and promote BCOM’s recycling achievements.”
To save energy: Recycling and reusing products uses less energy than creating products from raw materials.
To be environmentally friendly: Recycling helps prevent deforestation by reducing the number of trees and forests that are cut down.
To reduce landfill: Recycling diverts waste from landfill, which reduces the amount of methane and greenhouse gases that are released from landfill sites in to the atmosphere.
To be happy: A recent survey commissioned by Green Office Week shows that workers are happier if the companies they work for are greener.
