We work closely with residents and local councils throughout the region and always endeavour to give something back where we can. After all, these are the communities in which our own employees live. We have a significant programme of charity events which serve to raise funds for worthy causes throughout the region and many of our staff spend their time supporting a range of fantastic organisations across the South West.
Barnstaple's Tidy up the Town Initiative
Staff participated in Barnstaple's Tidy up the Town Initiative, voluntarily cleaning signs and picking up litter in and around the town in a bid to support the local community. The aim of this project was to improve the way the town looked and to encourage community spirit.
Building a driveway to aid mobility
Building a driveway for a local mum of 4, who relied on a wheelchair for mobility, is a prime example of how the knowledge and skills of our people can help those in need. The inaccessible driveway confined her to the house but SWH apprentices and supervisors were able to utilise donated materials and their time to resurface the drive and give her back her independence.
