We take our responsibility to serving the communities we work in and for very seriously.
We work with clients, partners and suppliers to improve and regenerate communities through the services and projects we deliver – from reinvigorating local neighbourhoods to transforming learning environments.
We also believe that by encouraging our people to engage in social, environmental and economic initiatives in the communities in which they work, we can bring further benefits to our wider stakeholders – not just in the UK but internationally.
Since 2007, we have worked in partnership with Oldham Council to help create over 2,000 job opportunities by the end of 2015 – as part of the ‘Get Oldham Working’ initiative.

Get Oldham Working includes a combination of workshops, mentoring, varied work experience and enrolment, which we coordinate and run from our facilities.
Our Community Involvement Policy encourages individual and team volunteering as well as local and national fundraising. The policy promotes active participation within our communities rather than purely financial support.
There are four key elements to the policy:
We are committed to supporting our armed forces in the community by signing the Armed Services Corporate Covenant.
Through our pledge, we commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community, recognising the value of Serving Personnel – both regular and reservists, veterans and millitary families contribute to our business and our country.
