We feel a strong sense of responsibility and are dedicated to creating desirable, successful and cohesive communities. We are determined to play our part in making them sustainable places to live and work. We have identified four key areas of engagement and development most relevant to the communities in which we work.
- Education and young people
Delivering mentoring programmes, partnerships and working strategically with local schools, to provide support and increase the educational aspirations and skills of young people
- Employment and skills
Supporting the delivery of traineeships, employment and skills development for our local residents
- Developing social impact and supporting community infrastructure
Championing and supporting resident and community-led initiatives that tackle key social issues
- Strategic employee volunteering
Encouraging each of our employees to donate their time and expertise during work time to tackle local social issues
Our network of dedicated regional Community Development Champions are the eyes and ears of our CR team. More than that though, they play a crucial part in engaging with our wider delivery teams to ensure that we keep our promises when it comes to local community activity.
