Social Values and Community Investment

Social value is embedded in J Tomlinson’s culture, and we are committed to leaving a positive legacy in the communities in which we operate. Over 80% of our work is undertaken for public bodies and not-for-profit organisations, and we have built up the in-house resources, external relationships and quality measures required to deliver impressive social value outputs across our core regions. Discover some of the areas we work within below…

Working as One Team to Build a Low Carbon Future

J Tomlinson is committed to helping tackle the climate crisis and become a more sustainable business from the inside out.
As well as helping our clients decarbonise their assets and operations via our specialist low carbon services, we are working to minimise our own environmental contributions to help
future-proof our organisation and our buildings.

Award-Winning Commitment to Sustainability

Our low carbon teams have gained 8 sustainability awards in the last 3 years for their continued efforts including being a Gold-standard winner at the International Green Apple Environmental Awards 2021.

Employee training and development: “Growing Our Own”

Our strong ‘Grow Our Own’ culture has seen J Tomlinson invest significantly in developing the skills of our people.

Over the past two years, employees of varying skillsets and experience across the business have signed to an apprenticeship to help enhance their skills in their role and provide them with the confidence and knowledge to develop in their chosen field.

Supporting Emotional Wellbeing

J Tomlinson’s 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) provides unlimited support to staff and their families via confidential face-to-face, telephone or online counselling with qualified professionals.
Since 2018, 18 members of J Tomlinson staff have been trained to become Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAs) to help support mental wellbeing across the company and beyond. Subcontractors working on J Tomlinson-managed sites are also able to access and take advantage of this service.

Community Investment: The Power of Partnerships

J Tomlinson is proud to have long-standing relationships with multiple prominent organisations, and we believe firmly in the positive power that strong partnerships can bring to communities and individuals.
Each year we work with Futures Housing Group to donate money and supermarket vouchers to local food banks, schools, and sports clubs.

Resident Engagement

Working within over 80,000 occupied homes every year, J Tomlinson is committed to ensuring resident satisfaction and improving wellbeing.
We take the time to hold coffee mornings and fish and chip lunches prior to and during work taking place, helping to put tenant’s minds at ease and bring the community together, helping lonely people to make friends.

Dementia Friendly Organisation

J Tomlinson is a Dementia-Friendly organisation, committed to working with clients, stakeholders and our wider communities to help people live well with dementia.

Community Projects and Voluntary Work

Each year J Tomlinson donates hundreds of hours to projects designed to enhance our local communities. We thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in a wide range of initiatives including litter-picking, planting, as well as helping to create new spaces and breathing life into existing ones.

School and Community Engagement

From work experience placements and mock interviews to apprenticeships and careers fairs, we work with local schools, job centres and apprenticeship providers to help build skills and confidence and reduce unemployment.

Providing a Safe and Happy Place to Be

Each year we support Gas Safety Week, helping to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances, which can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
During Road Safety Week 2020, we handed out high-vis stickers and snap bands to primary schools in Sheffield and Beeston.

Employee Sponsorship Scheme: Supporting Causes Close to Our Hearts

As well as volunteering and making charitable donations, J Tomlinson also gives its employees the opportunity to support causes that are close to their hearts. Each year, the company invites sponsorship proposals from its staff, and – over the last few years – has donated funds to a wide range of local and national causes.
