Henry Boot Construction has invested over £150,000 in community groups and charities across South Yorkshire in the last few years, proving their commitment to leaving a lasting legacy in the areas in which they work.

Through their strong partnerships with Rotherham 2010, Sheffield Homes and St Leger Homes of Doncaster, a wide range of projects have been delivered, from church re-roofing and porch refurbishment, to community group kitchens and flood repair work following the heavy rains in 2007.

Through working on the Decent Homes projects throughout the South Yorkshire region, strong links have been forged with the Local Authorities, ALMOs, Councillors, community groups and members of the public.

On top of investment made in community projects, a large amount of time has been given up by staff and operatives to help out with other activities – environment days, local fun days and schools visits have all played a big part in helping the relationship between Henry Boot Construction and the communities grow.

The projects in the South Yorkshire region are not the only works undertaken by the company - recent projects in other areas have included investment in community sports facilities in Scunthorpe and community group kitchen works in Manchester, amongst others.

“Investing in the communities in which we work is a key part of Henry Boot Construction’s organisational culture – it is our aim to leave a lasting legacy, particularly where we are working on Decent Homes investment programmes.
“When we work on these schemes, our site teams become a part of the community – we are proud to support them through investment in local projects and supporting their involvement with local people.”
