Working together to make an impact at intu Braehead
At intu we believe our stakeholder relationships create great value, by working together we can achieve more.
The benefit of a collaborative approach to making a difference in the community has been perfectly demonstrated by intu Braehead this year. intu Braehead wanted to improve the outside spaces available to local community-based organisations such as schools and sheltered housing estates. Since 2017 they have partnered with Cardwell Nurseries, the landscaping contractor at the centre, to organise volunteering in the community. The partnership enabled the centre to provide funds and volunteers eager to get to work and also get advice, expertise and tools from experts to make a real impact.
“Our partnership with intu Braehead allows us to give something back to the community.”
Managing Director, Cardwell Nurseries
Working with our stakeholders helps increase community investment and develop our relationships. Over the past two years 273 hours of intu employee time has been invested, alongside 112 hours from Cardwell Nurseries. In 2018 three sites – Glentar Court sheltered housing, Wallace Primary School and Paisley RFC – had outdoor areas transformed into enjoyable spaces benefiting over 500 people. intu Braehead and Cardwell Nurseries have plans for more transformations in 2019.
