Corporate and Social Responsibility
Here at DDS, we consider Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) to be an integral aspect of who we are as a company. As such, it has a strong influence on our everyday thoughts and actions.
We have a commitment to maintaining CSR throughout the DDS environment, including through our clients, suppliers, employees and all other stakeholders. In addition, we recognise the importance of supporting local community projects and initiatives.
One area in which our dedication towards CSR is demonstrated is through our continued belief in sustaining a healthy and safe workforce, not only through the provision of a happy and stable working environment, training and further opportunities, but also through Health and Safety programmes and accreditations such as CHAS, Safecontrator and Constructionline.
We take pride in keeping all of our clients continually updated about all current issues relating to the construction industry. In particular, we are able to offer them advice regarding sustainability.
Alongside other local businesses, DDS were recently involved in an exciting community programme for the Norris Green Area in Liverpool as part of the Children in Need Appeal and in partnership with DIY SOS Big Build. We were faced with the challenge of creating a new community centre, and what we achieved together was simply outstanding. The rundown centre was transformed into a place where the local residents were able to come together to play games and sports, hold meetings and offer community support. The end result has undoubtedly made a huge difference to the area, and we hope the legacy of this will be evident long into the future.
We were involved in the DIY SOS Big Build as part of the Children in Need appeal, this was to create a community centre for the Norris Green Area of Liverpool. We amongst other traders gave up our time and turned the ‘run down’ community centre to a place where the community could get together play sports, hold community meetings, play games and offer support to the community.
