At Peddimore, we are committed to delivering a positive impact outside of the physical boundaries of our development. Which is why in 2018, we launched the £270,000 Peddimore Community Fund, to help to strengthen communities and social value impact in surrounding local areas.
The fund awards grants of up to £2,000 to support social welfare, health and well-being initiatives, sports or community projects or formal training and education programmes.
IM Properties have been revisiting some of the Peddimore Community Fund projects, managed by the Heart of England Community Foundation, to see the positive impact the grants which they’ve received are making. For our most recent visit, we caught up with the Community Environmental Trust, an organisation dedicated to the protection and enhancement of green urban space whom have been helping to re-connect young people in Castle Vale with nature, to find out how the grant which they were awarded by the fund has benefited them.
