Corporate Social Responsibility

The Property Maintenance People

Corporate Social Responsibility

At PPM we take great pride and satisfaction in taking the time to give something back to the local communities which we serve. This isn’t something we do because we feel obliged to do it; it is something we do because we genuinely want to. We work with local people and our clients to identify suitable ways in which we can make a meaningful difference, whether this be offering a work placement to a resident, delivering a CV workshop to unemployed people, renovating a community centre or cleaning up a local housing estate.

We have proactively increased our corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities over the years and have encapsulated our passion and commitment into a Company Social Value Policy.

We now deliver structured projects which are focussed into five key areas:

  1. Employment & Training
  2. Health & Wellbeing
  3. Environment
  4. Ethics
  5. The Local Economy

We also create tailored Social Value Plans for our long term contracts to ensure there is pipeline of projects with impacts and outputs measured. Quite simply we love to help out in whatever way we can to put a smile on the faces of our customers and wider local community!
