We’re passionate about giving back and helping our local area, our Community Chest scheme is At Home’s legacy project and an important way of us giving financial support to local community organisations and services. Since starting the scheme, we have also launched our Positivity Projects initiative, an exciting and new way of offering support and investing time for those who need it.
In addition to our legacy projects we actively collaborate with local businesses, organisations and charities with sponsoring and partnerships. Our team have worked extremely hard on these projects and we are delighted with all that we have achieved so far.
We are very proud of our Community Chest scheme here at At Home Estate and Lettings Agency. Our vision is for the Community Chest scheme to encourage property sellers to donate a proportion of their fee to help support local, community based and volunteer run organisations of their choice.
Since launching the scheme in December 2017 we have been honoured to help and support a number of local communities including Know Dementia, Phoenix Stroke Association, Southwater Welcome Club, and Southwater Village Hall Pre-school and Southwater Junior FC as well as working with and supporting almost all of the schools in the district so far.
Born out of the pandemic of 2020, our Positivity Projects are designed to bring happiness and joy to our local area through competitions, campaigns and community activities. During lockdown we ran competitions, rewarded key workers for their amazing work, supported organisations through funding events that were otherwise lost to the restrictions of lockdown.
We are now committing to running 4 projects each year to launch each Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. We are all extremely excited to see where our next project takes us.
There are so many fantastic sports clubs, events, organisations, charities, schools, in fact you name it we have it in the area. We love engaging with so many and feel honoured to be invited to get involved with such a variety of causes. Our team regularly enjoys engaging in voluntary activities such as litter picking, supporting sports events and running stalls at fetes and festivals. In addition to this we have participated in charity fundraising events, sponsored local and school events, supported many raffles and competitions and sponsored local sports teams. Being able to give back to our community in so many ways is what continually helps inspire and motivate us to go the extra mile.
Starting the year with our winter Positivity Project we collaborated with several local sport clubs to showcase some of the opportunities we have in the area. The drive behind this campaign is to inspire, support and celebrate our local girls, to remind them how important getting active is both physically and emotionally and to hopefully increase awareness of the fantastic clubs that are currently working so hard to provide vital and equal opportunities within our community.
We were so proud to be able to support this project. The This Girl Can campaign aligned perfectly with our community-driven principles of increasing access and opportunities for everyone.
