Community project work

As part of the corporate social responsibility plan, sites should be committed to forming good relations with the local community.

This can range from regular updates and meetings with residents to sponsoring and attending community events and fundraising.

It can also include training and employment opportunities.

A number of sites implement a strong neighbourhood communications programme, centred around one-to-one contact.

Below are examples of how sites were involved within the local community:

  • All operatives committed to a minimum of four hours community project work;
  • A ‘Community Day’ was held, in support of a local charity;
  • There were several trade apprentices employed on site, together with two work placements and three members of staff who undertook mentoring for a school;
  • A safety poster competition was arranged with the local school and the children were also invited to a ‘brown roof’ seeding initiative;
  • A spreadsheet was created before the start of the project allocating work placement schemes and community visits to be undertaken during the project, this was closely monitored by the contractors and the client to make sure targets were being met.
