Working for our communities
Businesses across the Group have worked with clients and local communities to deliver essential help to those that need it.
Our purpose includes helping to create and sustain successful and cohesive communities where people want to live and work, and we are ideally positioned to help.
This means being involved in our communities beyond our immediate role as a provider of asset and energy support services. While some of our local authority customers require us to deliver social value through our contracts, such as by creating jobs or offering apprenticeships, we aim to do so wherever we work.
For example, we offer mentoring programmes and education partnerships, helping to increase the aspirations and skills of local young people. We offer residents access to apprenticeships, employment and skills development. And, whenever we can, we support initiatives that tackle social issues like crime, vandalism and other forms of anti-social behaviour. We also aim to promote social and digital inclusion, and health and wellbeing.
We are committed to addressing social issues and we are in an ideal position to help.
