Adding social value

Our social value programmes provide young people with training, mentoring, work experience, apprenticeships and other support. Working with architecture practices and developers, we ensure that new developments deliver real benefits to the local community.

We worked with Karakusevic Carson Architects on the Meridian Water development in Enfield.  We ran a programme for A-level students that included a studio tour, workshops, mentoring, and work experience.  A-level student Naran Oyuntsetseg went on to be awarded a £6,000 bursary through the scheme to support her with her architecture studies at the prestigious Bartlett School of Architecture.

Students we work with through our social value programmes are then enrolled onto our Building Futures programme, ensuring they receive on-going support as they develop their career aspirations.
