Community focused programme
Helping local people and improving our local community is vitally important to us.
We do this in many different ways:
- Working with local schools and colleges
- Supporting local events and community interests
- Financial assistance to sports clubs
- Supporting our chosen charity
- As an employer providing fulfilling career opportunities to 180+ local people
- Hosting regular team bonding events in and out of work with staff and their families
- G&H Apprentice Training School
We employ 180 members of staff who receive regular CPD training, opportunities to progress and are empowered to take on more responsibility. To help build team spirit and togetherness, we regularly hold events in and out of work with staff and their families.
Our purpose-built Apprenticeship Training Centre gives young people the chance to receive training in a range of skills, study for qualifications and given opportunities to work. Each year we take on circa 20 apprentices apprentices covering M&E and traditional trade skills.
LED Community Foundation is our chosen charity. It helps improve the life chances of children and young people in deprived areas through sport and education.
LED runs free after school clubs and holiday camps, finds young people apprenticeships and employment as well as running sessions on subjects like knife crime and anti-social behaviour.
