Social Value and Community
At Drew Smith we are not only passionate about the communities we create but also about the communities that surround our developments. When we deliver new homes, we ensure that we spend time to carefully consider how we can support the existing neighbourhood.
We work collaboratively with local community groups, parish councils and residents and support local schools and colleges to provide education, resources and support to make positive changes to the areas around the communities we create.
Drew Smith is part of Vistry Partnerships and as part of this wider business has chosen to support Mind as their Charity of the Year 2021.
Mind provides advice and support to empower people who are experiencing a mental health problem. Drew Smith raises vital funds through various fundraising activities and events to support this incredible charity to raise awareness and providing support functions to support people having a good mental wellbeing.
With one in four people experiencing mental health problems we understand how important it is to be aware and comfortable to speak openly on this topic. Drew Smith has trained Mental Health First Aiders that are on hand to promote a healthy wellbeing to the Drew Smith team as well as being a point of contact for any of our staff that may experience any mental health problems.
Supporting Women in Construction
Drew Smith is an equal opportunities employer and believes it to be important to encourage as well as promote female roles within the business. Vistry Partnerships as a group is proud to employ an above average number of women within its business and at Drew Smith, we pride ourselves in having women employed throughout the business from leadership roles to site teams.
Drew Smith Schools Programme
Our unique and extensive experience within the construction sector allows us to work closely with local schools and we are committed to provide schools with the resources for them to use to teach children about construction and the environment.
Engagement with local schools and colleges can include site tours, careers talks and bespoke outreach experience days. We have school activity packs which provide classroom activities that schools can deliver to their students which can be requested.
Contact email@example.com to request more information about how we can support your school or college.
