WE BELIEVE OUR DEVELOPMENTS SHOULD POSITIVELY IMPACT LOCAL PEOPLE, LOCAL BUSINESSES AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY.
That’s why we make it a prerequisite that our schemes must employ a local supply chain, provide opportunities for young people including apprentices, and become an education tool for schools, colleges and universities, as well as actively engaging in a number of community initiatives.
Through Crossfield Exclusive Developments’ projects we have achieved the following corporate social responsibility targets over the past two years:
CAREERS TALKS TO OVER
100 YOUNG PEOPLE
30 SITE VISITS WITH
LOCAL YOUNG PEOPLE
100% LOCAL SUPPLY
CHAIN ON OUR PROJECTS
SPONSORSHIP OF EIGHT
LOCAL FOOTBALL TEAMS
PARTNERSHIP WITH EVERTON IN THE COMMUNITY TO
SUPPORT THEIR 'GET INTO CONSTRUCTION' PROGRAMME
40 new employment opportunities for local
people through our construction partner
In 2020, we launched a joint initiative with ‘Awake’, a new self-development centre in Liverpool. The facility aims to improve the quality of life of every person that visits through physical fitness, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. We’ve supported the centre with a substantial sponsorship to specifically focus on supporting young people in the City. This enables Awake to provide a full timetable of free classes to children with the sole aim of combating and preventing mental disorders whilst promoting inner peace, health and wellbeing.
As part of the Awake project, we also support the ‘I Am Project’ spearheaded by Managing Director Mark Scanlon. This offers martial arts training, mentoring across local schools and mindfulness techniques to as many children in the City as we can support.
EXAMPLES OF OUR ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:
On this apartment scheme in Liverpool, we have actively engaged with local charity Everton in the Community to provide extensive opportunities for local young people.
This has included: 30 site visits; careers talks; live demonstrations on site; follow up site visits; construction team building exercises; supporting a Dragons Den-style young persons' entrepreneur activity;
