Lives

Charity Cheque Penny MS Society

People turn houses into homes and neighbourhoods into thriving communities.

Through a combination of tenant led initiatives and annual business objectives, we are helping more people realise their full potential.

Annual Charity Support

Each year, colleagues at Trent & Dove take a vote on which charities they will be supporting over the next 12 months.

In 2013, proceeds from bake sales, dress down days and sponsored silences were split between Canine Partners and McMillan Cancer Care. Please us the links to find out more about our fundraising efforts.

This year, we will be support our local hospice - St Giles.

Getting back to work

Getting back into the world of work not only brings financial rewards, but it can have a wider ranging social impact, too.

Following redundancy or years of unemployment, people can lose confidence in their abilities or simply not know how to start looking for a new career.

By setting up job clubs we have helped 26 people back into work over the past 12 months (from March to March). 40 people to present (March to now). Giving people the skills they need to create a stand-out CV, master a computer and practise interview techniques can be the confidence boost many people need and set them on the road to employment.

He was part of a construction team working on 11 new homes at Tilling Close, Burton. Take a look at how the project has benefited him.
