The LHC partners each have the opportunity to create and distribute a Community Benefit Fund. The fund is generated from the rebate members receive if they spend over a specified threshold on our frameworks. An additional community benefit fund is available to LHC Board member organisations and the Partners who are successfully appointed to the London and South East.
We work with Locality to find a local charity partner who can help distribute grants to worthwhile projects and causes. Projects and causes must meet specific criteria determined by members, to ensure the Community Benefit Fund is used to support local needs and objectives.
The LHC Community Benefit Fund is a great success story for the community groups it helps in the London and South East region. Over the last year, in excess of £65,000 has been invested in many community projects, targeting broad areas of need, from skills training for older men to equipment for people with dementia, and community gardens to young people's facilities in deprived areas.
A rebate cheque of £17,000 was presented to Vivid Homes, who are a firm which deliver homes, services and support to over 70,000 customers. Over the years, Anglian Building Products were appointed to undertake numerous planned Windows and Doors projects through LHC's A7 framework. Which has created high expectations reflected in both their quality of service and performance within a value for money offering.
