Social Value

Social Value

Community involvement is so important for our business, whether it’s procuring locally and re-investing in our local economy. Engaging and getting involved with community activities from training, upskilling our workforce to leaving a legacy where possible. We invest in our people and encourage personal development, by giving everyone an opportunity for development and training whilst providing a good place to work.

The majority of Woodmace employees live within a 25 miles radius of our office, so the areas of Dorset and Hampshire are part of our everyday lives and we care about the communities in which we live and work.

The McCarthy Stone Foundation are delighted to welcome Woodmace as a partner to our charity. From our first conversation together it was clear that Woodmace is a company built on community and people, who have taken part in a wide range of initiatives to help others. They recognise the importance of local businesses supporting local people, and we are looking forward to working together over the coming months to identify projects in Dorset and the surrounding area that can benefit from their expertise and the generous donation they have made.

Food donations were distributed between BCP food banks

Woodmace we saw a chance to ’give back’ to our local community where it was needed most, by supporting families in Bournemouth and Poole who were struggling with food poverty. The food was distributed by foodbanks and charities.

“An enormous source of pride for Woodmace is our ability to support good causes. Our recent food appeal for children in poverty, saw the entire company come together and a van load of food donated to be to families who need it. This is another example of how effective we are when working towards a common goal; the individuals in this business are amazing but as a whole we are even greater than the sum of our parts.

Toy donations

Woodmace are proud to have donated to charities also, on one of our sites we provided toy donations to Ashley’s Toy Bank, who support families in poverty, who have suffered from domestic violence, neglect and human trafficking or abuse. We donated a selection of new toys for children of various age ranges to ensure that they had something to open on Christmas day.
