Max's Foundation

Max's Foundation is a remarkable testament to the story of Max Schiller, a young boy who deeply touched the hearts of many. In 2014, the Schiller family noticed changes in their son's health, such as fatigue and difficulty with physical activities. 

They were referred to Great Ormond Street Hospital for an initial round of appointments and tests in late 2014, with further appointments due in early 2015.

Despite some improvement during the Christmas season, tragedy struck on January 8, 2015, when Max sadly passed away unexpectedly in his sleep, at the young age of 10.

The family later discovered that Max had an undetected genetic heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), characterised by the thickening of the heart muscle wall. This condition often remains asymptomatic and is challenging to detect, especially in children. In Max's memory and with the support of loved ones, the family established Max's Foundation in 2016 as a lasting legacy, aiming to raise awareness and support for research into this devastating condition.

Max's Foundation was established by Max's family, Dave, Shira and Molly Schiller, to support research aimed at improving the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of genetic heart conditions in children. The mission is to help families impacted by these conditions and provide assistance to them.

Since 2017, Max’s Foundation has partnered with the Centre for Inherited Cardiovascular Diseases at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) to fund the role of Research Nurse as well as the provision of life-saving monitoring equipment. Headed by Dr Juan Pablo Kaski, a consultant paediatric cardiologist, the centre is the largest in the UK dedicated to the evaluation and management of the full range of inherited cardiac conditions in children. The role of the Research Nurse is to introduce patients to ground-breaking trials and analyse data from studies aiming to find new and better ways to detect rare heart conditions particularly hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Earlier last year, the Centre announced the development of the first-ever tool to identify children at risk of sudden death from cardiomyopathy. Max’s Foundation was credited in the press release and in subsequent articles as a contributing organisation. This research project is progressing phenomenally well and due to the enormous amount of work and data, they are now co-funding a research assistant.

Their aim is to continue to fund this incredible project. It is beginning to yield exciting results and there are upcoming plans for Ella and her assistant to continue their research into inherited heart conditions in young children. Without the funding provided by Max’s Foundation, this project would struggle to continue in its current form.

If you would like to know more about the research project, have a look at the charity’s latest video here:

Crawfords have been supporters of Max's Foundation for many years. It is a charity extremely close to our hearts and we are dedicated to supporting Max's Foundation every way we can.  

On October 28th 2023, Max's Foundation are taking part in the Ultra Challenge 10K Halloween charity walk. If you are interested in joining the Max’s Monsters team for this walk, please feel free to reach out to or by sending a direct message on their Instagram, @maxsfoundation. 

There are also other fantastic fundraising events throughout the year to help raise awareness. You can find all updates on

ISO 14001

In an era where environmental concerns are at the forefront of global discussions, Crawfords is striving to adopt sustainable practices and reduce our environmental footprint by investing in hybrid and electric vehicles and implementing eco-friendly practices in our office. Our certification in ISO 14001 demonstrates our compliance with the internationally recognized standard for helping to improve environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.

What is the ISO 14001 Certificate?

The ISO 14001 certificate has emerged as a valuable tool in this endeavor, enabling businesses to effectively manage their environmental responsibilities and achieve long-term sustainability goals. It provides a systematic framework that empowers organizations to identify, monitor, control, and continually improve their environmental performance. By adopting ISO 14001, we commit to complying with relevant environmental regulations, minimizing waste, and implementing sustainable practices.

What are the benefits of ISO 14001 Certification?

ISO 14001 drives organizations to assess their environmental impact, set objectives, and implement strategies to reduce resource consumption, emissions, and waste generation. This leads to improved environmental performance and a more sustainable operational model. Achieving ISO 14001 certification ensures that an organization is aware of and complies with relevant environmental regulations, reducing the risk of non-compliance penalties and legal complications.By implementing efficient environmental management systems, organizations can identify opportunities to reduce energy consumption, optimize resource utilization, and minimize waste generation. This leads to cost savings through improved operational efficiency.

How does a company obtain !SO 14001 certification?

To obtain an ISO 14001 certification, a company would need to follow a systematic approach and fulfil specific requirements. The first step involves establishing an Environmental Management System (EMS) that aligns with the ISO 14001 standard. The company would need to define its environmental policy, set environmental objectives and targets, and create procedures to identify and comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements. Next, the company would conduct an initial environmental review to identify potential environmental aspects and impacts associated with its activities, products, and services. Based on the findings, the company would develop and implement controls and measures to mitigate environmental risks and improve performance. This may include initiatives to reduce waste, conserve energy, manage emissions, and promote sustainable practices. The company would also need to establish a robust monitoring and measurement system to track its environmental performance and ensure compliance with the set objectives. Finally, an internal audit and management review would be conducted to assess the effectiveness of the EMS and identify areas for improvement. Once the company has successfully implemented the necessary measures and demonstrated compliance with the ISO 14001 standard, it can undergo an external audit by a certification body to achieve ISO 14001 certification, which provides a credible recognition of the company's commitment to environmental management and sustainability.

Female Chauffeurs

In the traditionally male-dominated field of chauffeur services, the emergence of female chauffeurs marks a significant step toward inclusivity and diversity. The rise of female chauffeurs represents not only a departure from the norm but also a testament to the changing landscape of professional opportunities for women. These skilled individuals are breaking barriers and defying stereotypes, demonstrating that expertise behind the wheel knows no gender boundaries. Female chauffeurs bring a unique perspective to the industry, excelling in customer service, attention to detail, and adept navigation, while also providing a more inclusive choice for clients who prefer or feel more comfortable with a female driver. Their presence enriches the chauffeur profession and paves the way for increased female representation within a sector that has historically been male-centric.

Recognizing the value that diversity brings to their team, Crawfords encourages and supports women to pursue careers as chauffeurs. By fostering an environment that prioritizes equal opportunities and empowerment, Crawfords has cultivated a reputation for inclusivity that resonates with both its employees and clientele. By embracing female chauffeurs and giving them the same opportunities for growth and success as their male counterparts, Crawfords exemplifies the transformative power of progressive thinking in reshaping long-standing norms and paving the way for a more diverse and representative workforce.

Driver Recruitment Process

Recruitment is the backbone of any successful company, and for Crawford's, a leading player in the transportation industry, this process is a meticulous blend of thorough screening, skill assessment, and compliance checks. The road to becoming a part of Crawford's driver team is riddled with several well-defined steps to ensure the highest standards of professionalism and safety are maintained. Let's take a closer look at Crawford's driver recruitment process.

1. Initial Contact and Screening 

The journey begins when an applicant reaches out to Crawford's recruitment team. This initial contact marks the beginning of a comprehensive evaluation. The recruitment team screens the applicant's qualifications and credentials to ensure they align with the company's requirements. This initial step helps to filter out individuals who do not meet the baseline criteria, ensuring that only candidates with a strong potential move forward.

2. Face-to-Face Interview and Knowledge Test 

Candidates who pass the initial screening are invited for a face-to-face interview. This interview is a crucial opportunity for both the candidate and Crawford's to assess the compatibility of skills, values, and expectations. Alongside the interview, candidates are subjected to a knowledge test. This test assesses their practical knowledge and common-sense decision-making skills, integral to performing well in dynamic driving scenarios.

3. Additional Screening Questions 

During the interview process, Crawfords takes the time to delve deeper into the candidate's work history. Pertinent questions about their current place of work, tenure, reasons for seeking new employment, and the ability to provide a reference from a previous employer are asked. This comprehensive inquiry helps Crawfords better understand the candidate's motivations, stability, and professionalism.

4. Experience Check 

Crawfords hold experience in high regard. A minimum of two years of proven driving experience is a prerequisite for candidates to be considered. This step ensures that the drivers possess a solid foundation of practical skills and familiarity with the demands of the role.

5. Knowledge Test and Reference Review 

Another significant aspect of the recruitment process is the knowledge test, comprising a set of 16 questions. Candidates who answer more than 12 questions correctly move forward, provided that their references are satisfactory. This two-fold approach combines theoretical knowledge with real-world endorsements, establishing a holistic assessment of the candidate's readiness.

6. Document Verification and Compliance Checks 

To guarantee legal compliance and driver competence, Crawfords rigorously verifies essential documents. This includes a copy of the driver's license, utility bills for address verification, identification through passport or resident card, an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, and an online Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) license check to confirm driving history and points.

7. Specialized Licensing and Health Checks 

For executive and chauffeur positions, possession of a valid Private Hire Vehicle (PCO) license issued by Transport for London is a legal mandate. Crawfords ensures that candidates fulfill this requirement by validating the license through an online TFL search system. Health and safety are also priorities. Candidates undergo an eye test via Essilor online to ensure suitable visibility. A health questionnaire and driving suitability test complete this phase, fortified by the ISO readiness policy.

8. Familiarization and Onboarding 

Successful candidates are introduced to Crawfords’ company manual, and an executive guides them through it systematically. This manual serves as a comprehensive guide to the company's policies and procedures, instilling a strong foundation of understanding. The driver downloads the Freedom Mobile App, a crucial tool for receiving work assignments, and is trained on its usage. Subsequently, an IT orientation equips drivers with mobile Wi-Fi devices, facilitating smooth communication.

9. Final Steps and Integration 

The journey culminates in an introduction to the control team, where drivers receive direction and integrate into the operational flow. The meticulous steps of the recruitment process ensure that each driver is not just skilled, but also well-informed about the company's ethos, policies, and operational tools.

New drivers are given an introduction into Crawford's ethos, health and safety policies, and daily protocols. We emphasize that Crawfords enforces a strict zero-tolerance approach towards behaviors that are disrespectful, racist, homophobic, physically aggressive, or hostile. It is essential for drivers to consistently deliver the highest level of customer service and conduct themselves in a suitable and professional demeanor at all times.

Crawford's driver recruitment process is a comprehensive journey that blends stringent screening, comprehensive skill assessment, and meticulous compliance checks. This multi-faceted approach ensures that only the most qualified and reliable candidates become part of the Crawfords driver team, upholding the company's commitment to excellence, safety, and professionalism.
