Our Commitment to Social Value

Each community we work in is central to every project we deliver. Our driving force is to ensure we make a positive contribution to the people living and working at our developments, and we aim to ensure the impact of this work is felt for generations to come through social, economic and environmental programmes designed to improve the prosperity and wellbeing of an area.

We provide apprenticeships and support training schemes to facilitate education and local job opportunities, making our industry more accessible for people to enter than ever before.

By supporting charities and social enterprises, we help to tackle a number of issues faced by some of the most vulnerable and marginalised in our society.

So while bricks and mortar can provide one of the most basic human rights – a home – we’re also committed to building the social and economic tools conducive to happy, thriving communities, now and in the future.
