Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

99% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Their homes represent one in every 10 households in North Devon, a picturesque holiday destination masking the real levels of significant deprivation in the area. As a community landlord much of their social responsibility is delivered through their community development activities. This work focuses around young people with estate-based youth clubs acting as a platform for interventions aimed at increasing educational aspirations, building resilience and assisting in the transition from school to work. The company can proudly state that 100% of the young people within the project have found paid employment and/or college places when leaving school. Their work is well documented within the independent evaluation undertaken by St Mark & St John University (December 2014). Dr Cooper remarked “The developing young communities approach is clearly influenced at leadership level by NDH's commitment to ‘create communities where people want to live'.” Within the evaluation links are also made with their family work in the wider community where they tackle debt, fuel and food poverty and social exclusion. Partners recognise their commitment to their social responsibility, acknowledging they deliver evidenced impact and value for money.
