Our aim is to make a positive impact through the services we
provide and the projects we deliver, and to help improve the social
and economic development of the communities in which we work.
We recognise that the needs of each community are different and
so we build relationships and partnerships at a local level to
ensure we address their specific needs and make as valuable a
difference as possible.
Many of the things that we do have a direct impact on local
communities. We work with a host of stakeholders from developers
and investors to local and central government, the third sector and
community groups to deal with the complex issues in design,
transport, planning, environmental impact and engineering - as well
as associated economic, physical and social factors - and deliver
Supporting sporting achievement
During 2012 we supported Mark Hunter MBE in his quest to become
a double Olympic rowing champion at the London 2012 Games. we’ve
also been advising on the roll-out of Cage Cricket, a new urban
sport that aims to break down traditional barriers to sports
participation for young people in towns and cities across the UK.
We also entered our fourth year as main sponsor of RFU Championship
team Bristol Rugby. Having been involved in many major projects in
the area over the past decade we have been an official Club Partner
since 2004 and are proud to support the team’s push for top-flight
rugby, as well as its strong links with the local Bristol
Promoting our industry in local communities
We engage with local schools, colleges and universities across
the UK to promote careers in construction and engineering through a
number of initiatives and programmes including work experience
placements, lectures, mock interviews and academic awards. Our
staff also volunteer for Business in the Community's ‘Right to
Read’ programme across the UK.
It’s impossible to list the number of our employees who take
part in UK and international charity and community events every
year. Whether it’s running, climbing, jumping off things or a host
of other weird and wonderful challenges (not to mention a more
relaxed coffee morning or cake bake in their workplace) our people
are always eager to give up their own time to participate -
supported in their fundraising by their colleagues and Capita’s
matched funding scheme.
