Working collaboratively with our clients, CCG will always look to support local communities in which we operate, be it the design and delivery of much-needed affordable homes or through a wide range of ‘community benefit’ initiatives consisting of full-time jobs, access to our apprentice and training programmes, work placements, support for schools or investment in community organisations and projects.
Through early-engagement, bespoke initiatives are chosen with the community in mind, creating a lasting legacy, rather than adopting a generic approach, to ultimately achieve a positive local and a wider regional impact that supports longer-term economic value rather than short-term gain. An example includes a multi-phase community benefit programme that will be delivered as part of our strategic partnership with East Ayrshire Council where 270 homes will be constructed over the next 3 years. CCG has worked alongside the Council’s Vibrant Communities representatives who work directly with local community groups to establish how and where the investment should be delivered.
CCG values the trust given to us by our clients and communities. Our reputation is built on an honest and open approach to working with our partners, stakeholders and clients. We work hard to build relationships with trusted partners, clients and community members with our ethical and straight-forward approach central to our success.
We are also keen supporters of charities as a result of construction works including Ronald McDonald House and St Andrew’s Hospice. CCG also donates to the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice and larger charitable organisations such as MacMillan Cancer, amongst others. Also, as an extension of our commitment to charitable causes, CCG offers every employee with a one-day charity incentive per year in order to support a charity or cause of their choice.
