Investing in the Local Community

Our developments are integral parts of the broader community, bringing new people into the area and helping to build on and enhance local connections.

We’re proud to support schools, charities and institutions surrounding our developments to grow and flourish, providing financial and business aid to help them continue their great work.

charity

We support a range of charities that are important to our residents, our staff and our partners.

HELPING US CHOOSE

Helping us choose copy: In 2020, we asked Simple Life residents to help us determine proportional donations to 4 fantastic causes, who would each get a share of £100,000.

Your incredible donation will make a huge difference to the lives of women and children experiencing abuse. Thank you so much to everyone who has made this donation possible, those who nominated us and all your residents who voted to support Women's Aid.

CONTRIBUTING TO A GREENER FUTURE

CONTRIBUTING TO A GREENER FUTURE

At Simple Life, we are well aware of the impact human activity has on the environment, and are always looking at our practices and processes to improve our green credentials and commit to a cleaner future.

  • Clothes Banks

    In 2019 we launched a partnership with White Rose who take unwanted clothes and resell or recycle them to reduce landfill. Residents on our apartment block schemes will be able to donate their clothes and textiles with ease and help White Rose’s Green Fashion Mission.

  • SUSTAINABILITY

    It’s the little things that can make a big difference! That’s why all our Welcome Boxes for new residents include a Simple Life ranger bottle and jute shopping bag, encouraging our customers to reduce their plastic waste – and shop in style!

  • TREES & GREEN SPACES

    We are committed to increasing the number of trees planted on our developments, which don’t just improve the aesthetic of our neighbourhoods but put back greenery which may have been impacted by our builds.
