At Morgan Sindall Property Services our goal is to create opportunities for people in the communities we serve, as well as supporting communities to be more coherent and economically resilient.
Over the years we have developed our four community programmes to help us deliver on our ambitions to support disadvantaged people into employment, generate prospects for young people, and engage with local charities.
Where possible, we want to quantify the difference we are making to people, communities and society as a whole by calculating the social value created by our community programmes in financial terms. We are certified as a social value organisation, achieving over £3.5 million in social return across all contracts from April 2021 to March 2022, which is certified by HACT the charity organisation.

With energy prices on the rise, it’s helpful for residents to understand good energy usage practices and the support that’s available if they are struggling to pay bills.

Residents will receive advice on:
- What to do if customers are struggling to pay energy bills
- How to make sure a home is energy-efficient
- Keeping a home free from condensation and mould growth
- The best boiler controls for heating a home efficiently
- Where to access grants and benefits to help support with paying energy bills
- Agencies that provide extra support and guidance
Digital Inclusion Sessions
The sessions provide residents with the skills to access resources, support, and financial tools necessary for them in their everyday lives.
The sessions are split up into two parts:
- Staying in touch – creating an email, installing mobile apps such as WhatsApp and Zoom
- Online shopping – how to set up shopping accounts, PayPal accounts
These 1-hour sessions are designed to support residents to write a CV from scratch, teaching the importance of tailoring a CV to the individual job role they are applying for.
