We are more than a property business. We are committed to acting responsibly in the communities in which we operate, both through our work and charitable contributions.
We believe that the long-term future of our business is best served by respecting the interests of all our stakeholders: staff, clients, partners, investors, suppliers and the wider community in which we operate.
We align our corporate social responsibility with wider business development plans, linking these plans with our future decision making, objectives and values, and enabling us to run our business conscientiously to the effect of achieving long term success.
We hope that by leveraging our company’s strengths, we are able to raise awareness of the importance of environmental responsibility and encourage our staff and the communities in which we operate to contribute towards the development of social responsibility on a broader platform.
Through proactive engagement with experts and the community, we are confident we can shape and be prepared for any issues that may happen in the industry during the coming years, enhancing our own reputation and becoming an industry expert in responsible development.
We offer defined learning and career opportunities to all staff, investing in staff training tailored to the requirements of each specific employee, the needs of their job role and future ambitions.
Over the last 10 years, we have welcomed more than 100 graduates into the Group across all divisions, giving them their first experience of a professional working environment and enabling them to make a valuable contribution towards the business.
Many of the graduates we have welcomed have remained at Adderstone Group following their placement years or returned to the business on completion of their degree courses.
Adderstone Group also actively supports a thriving apprenticeship scheme which has developed two-fold successes for the business. Our apprentices are able to learn on the job, building confidence and knowledge, whilst the Group benefits from an excellent route to harness fresh, new talent.
As a leader in our sector, it is our responsibility to engage with young people and encourage them to consider a career in our industry. We work in partnership with Newcastle, Durham and Northumbria Universities to provide opportunities for young people and to offer an insight into working life.
Adderstone Group takes a long-term approach to investing in places and creating communities. We enjoy the challenge of transforming derelict sites and brownfield land to create better places for people to live and work.
We make efforts to engage extensively with community representatives in the locations where we are undertaking development work to ensure a collaborative approach and a brighter future.
We operate to make places better and we are proud of the homes, jobs and investment the business has generated.

The Adderstone Foundation is the charity arm of Adderstone Group.
After almost a decade of growing the company’s residential and commercial portfolio and supporting causes close to our hearts on an impromptu basis, the Adderstone Foundation was set up in 2007 to provide a more efficient and targeted way for us to support the community.
The Adderstone Foundation, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, supports and provides funds for important charities and causes. The Foundation doesn’t just focus on the North East; it aims to make a positive impact on people’s lives both within the UK and further afield.
Since its inception, the Foundation has supported a wealth of charitable beneficiaries and has contributed £803,000 via donations and contributions across four key areas, including health, education, community and sport.
The Foundation is proud to support and have witnessed the growth of one of the UK’s largest visually impaired tennis clubs, the North East Visually Impaired Tennis Club (NEVITC), amongst other causes.
