People & Communities
Find out more about how we are building on our social value by extending the Thakeham Family across employees, partnerships and communities.
The Thakeham Family
The meaningful placemaking Thakeham strives for means nothing without the people and the communities that live there or the people that work tirelessly to deliver the quality of product we demand. With family at the heart of everything we do, nurturing and growing the Thakeham Family has always been and still remains hugely important to us. Thakeham recognizes that communicating and contributing to local communities, charities and causes is just as important as ensuring the well-being, happiness and job satisfaction of all of our Thakeham family.
Thakeham has long recognised the importance of creating cohesive communities and as well as the importance of investing in services and assets, sees community business as a vital mechanism to achieve our ambition of being a sustainable, infrastructure-led community creator. The community business model will be used to create truly sustainable and vibrant community hubs that can potentially include retail, café, meeting rooms, co-working facilities, allotments and accessible green spaces.
