McLaughlin & Harvey Construction Ltd, Scottish Fire and Rescue, for the initiative: “Communities Matter: Social Inclusion”

Improving lives and creating lasting legacies is at the heart of McLaughlin & Harvey’s (McLH) Community Matters Programme at the Scottish Fire and Rescue West Arc project. Partnering with local community groups, McLH has targeted its resources directly to those in crisis, supporting hundreds of people experiencing the high cost of living and ongoing cuts to local services. Initiatives included: a community lunch providing 100 hot meals; volunteering at a local foodbank; theatre ticket donations to tackle social isolation in the elderly; and monetary support to other charities and social enterprises. Delivering a positive impact to individuals and families experiencing isolation and poverty, the programme has generated £6.67m in Social Value and inspired teams to deliver similar initiatives across other projects.
