The Berkeley Foundation was set up by the Berkeley Group in March 2011. It is a registered charity that supports young people and their families in the communities in which Berkeley works.
The Foundation focuses on making a difference in four key areas: developing people's skills, helping them secure a job, ensuring they can have a home, and supporting people to live positively with illness or disability, summarised as Homes, Jobs Skills and Care.
In its first four years, the Foundation has now committed over £7 million to more than 70 charities and worthy causes. These range from in-depth Strategic Partnerships with programmes like Street Elite and charities like Shelter and Crisis, to smaller scale partnerships with the local Designated Charities chosen by staff in our offices and sites.
The Foundation's resources come from a variety of sources. Berkeley Group employees have raised over £2 million in four years through fundraising events and Give As You Earn. Core funding is given to the Foundation by the Berkeley Group itself and they receive external donation and support from Berkeley's consultants, subcontractors and supply chains.
