Together we can make a difference
Everyone in this company tries to help me when I’m down; I’ve never really had that before.
Together operates in a number of geographical areas, focusing on the needs of local communities. We started in Bristol in 2011 and have expanded to operate in Birmingham and Glasgow. Our aim is to provide opportunities throughout the UK by expanding our regional businesses to meet local needs.
Together started in Bristol in 2011. Since that time it’s employees have developed more than 70 properties in the local community.
Together started in Birmingham in 2013 and has since offered recently released prisoners in the area the opportunity to develop a variety of construction industry skills.
Glasgow Together, our third regional business, started work in 2014. It has so far employed 15 ex-offenders in the development of a number of residential properties.
Our work has had significant social impact in Bristol, Birmingham and Glasgow. For those we employ each year we contributed savings to government of around £30,000 per individual. Since we started this equates to over £3m.
