Story Homes unveils the success of its Sustainable Story campaign in its annual Corporate Social Responsibilty report

July 2016

The report outlines its fundraising accomplishments, financial pledges and ecological achievements.Pupils at The Grove Primary School

During 2015-2016, Story Homes alongside Story Contracting raised £15,000 for Eden Valley Hospice, its charity partner for the year. We also pledged £106,605 to a number of local community and charity events, including a variety of sports club sponsorships for clubs such as Kendal County FC, Carlisle Centurions FC, Tynedale Rugby Club and Dalston Junior Black Reds.

 Similarly, we donated funds to multiple charity raffles, sponsored awards, events, programmes and challenges.

Alongside these efforts, we have been recognised for the third year running with five-star rating in customer satisfaction by the House Builders’ Federation, and recycled 98.7% of all waste at  our sites, further highlighting our commitment to long-term sustainability.

As part of its Sustainable Story, Story Homes is investigating measures to improve a number of site- and office-based issues, which include launching its flagship apprenticeship scheme and boosting the number of school leavers joining the firm; implementing recycling and health and safety targets; and improving community relations and charitable activity.
Steve Errington, chief executive of Story Homes, said: “We have grown rapidly over the last few years but have remained true to our values. As we continue to grow into new areas, and with the company now split into regions it’s important that we embed our values into the way we operate. This report is just the start. We’re going to be setting ourselves high standards and tough targets for the years ahead.
The company’s founder, Fred Story, added: “It’s important to me, that the values that motivated me when I set out nearly 30 years ago aren’t eroded over time. We are not building houses; we are building homes that are part of a wider community. I want people to be proud to work for Story Homes and proud of what we achieve. This all boils down to doing the right thing, at the right time, for the right reasons.”
