Being deeply involved in our communities has always been fundamental to how we operate.

Some of our local authority customers require us to deliver social value through our contracts with them — such as committing to job creation or apprenticeships. We take the same approach in every area we work in.

We offer mentoring programmes and education partnerships, working strategically with local schools to provide support and increase young people’s educational aspirations and skills. We provide apprenticeships, employment and skills development for residents in our communities. We champion and support resident and community-led initiatives that tackle key social issues, such as crime, anti-social behaviour, digital and financial inclusion, and health and wellbeing.

We are committed to addressing social issues, and we are in an ideal position to help.
