Caddick Construction Group is building on its investment in local communities with the launch of a business-wide volunteering programme that will see staff donate over 300 hours to good causes across Yorkshire, the North East, North West and Midlands.
The first Communities Week programme, which took place in October, was rolled out across the business’ regional footprint with teams from key projects carrying out volunteer work on a range of charitable initiatives.
Supported by its clients and supply chain partners, the Caddick team volunteered time to renovate and improve community spaces for a range of charities local to the business’ projects.
Close to Caddick’s headquarters, the team volunteered at Knottingley Community Shop and Cafe, a charity offering wellbeing support and affordable meals for vulnerable members of the community. Caddick volunteers helped prepare and serve free meals as part of the charity’s own community day.
The new Communities Week initiative has been launched by Caddick Construction Group as part of its wider Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, Places for Life, and builds on the business’ continuous efforts to support the communities local to its projects.
Activities include fundraising for local causes, engagement with local schools to inspire the next generation and working with social enterprises that support vulnerable and disadvantaged members of society.
Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction Group Managing Director, commented: “Investing in and supporting communities has been a big focus for our business for many years and it's a really important and very well established part of our business culture. Launching Communities Week builds on those solid foundations and empowers our staff to seek out initiatives so they can volunteer their time to make a difference. Our ambition was that this initiative would be collaborative, and we’ve had an incredible response from our clients and supply chain partners, who have volunteered alongside the Caddick team.”
