Bringing together senior citizens and school children

Engagement with the local community is important to promote a positive image of the construction industry.

It is important to consider the needs and concerns of the local community before embarking on a project.

Constant engagement with and consideration for local residents helps to build a good relationship between the site and the neighbourhood, thus minimising any annoyances or complaints which may arise.

Below is an example of how you can build a good rapport with the local community:

  • The company bought together two groups, the ‘silver surfers’ and school pupils, at a local school they had been supporting;
  • The senior citizens taught the children board games and playground activities, which included hopscotch, marbles, dominoes, and snakes and ladders;
  • In return the children helped the senior citizens with using and understanding computers and technology.
