Initiatives involving the local community

Social Value & Communities

With community 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. 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, opening up our industry to a more diverse pool of talent. By supporting charities and social enterprises, we help to tackle 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 with the      social and economic tools needed to create happy, thriving communities, now and in the future.

Some upcoming opportunities on Ham Close include:

  • 40 Job starts
  • Work placements
  • 24 Apprenticeships
  • Digital inclusion sessions
  • School engagement events
