As a business, we believe we have a responsibility to give something back to the communities and areas where we operate. And, as an employer, we encourage our people to play their part – not just to help others but for what it does for them in return. We’ve seen how charity and community work has helped our employees with their personal development and self-awareness.
Case study: Collaboration with CRASH
One of the charities we are proud to support is CRASH, a unique, practical charity that assists homelessness and hospice charities with construction related projects. We’re proud to be able to support this great work and sponsor the Wildgoose Chase, a cross-industry annual fund-raising event developed by our graduate management trainees.
Armed Forces Covenant
Taylor Wimpey have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and have been awarded the prestigious Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award. Taylor Wimpey are an armed forces-friendly organisation and are open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.
As with CRASH, we generally focus on smaller national charities or regional/local charities where we can make a more significant difference and where our employees can be actively involved, rather than solely be a funding partner. We prioritise:
- Projects which promote aspiration and education in disadvantaged areas.
- Intervening and improving homeless situations for seriously economically disadvantaged groups in the UK.
- Local projects that have a direct link with our regional businesses and developments.
