A little more about the award: Corporate social responsibility plays an important role for NI companies and this specialist category sets out to recognise an organisation from the private, public or voluntary sectors making a clear and impactful contribution to its local community as a whole.

We identify potential developments and assess the feasibility of these by considering the range of amenities, facilities and services that residents would have access to, if they were to live there.
The company understands that for families to be content they need to feel a sense of belonging and connection with the local community. Our corporate social responsibility strategy is therefore focused on making a clear, impactful contribution to communities, by increasing access to services and by investing in social infrastructure that can affect positive change.
In recent years, we have supported more than 20 charities/organisations, financially and in-kind as we seek to enhance community resilience.
