Our Communities

Giving back and helping others

Our Communities is the name for corporate social responsibility at NHBC and it is how we support the communities in which we operate and where our colleagues live, working with charity partners who are aligned with our values. 

What we do 

We deliver the aims of our Communities through a combination of activities and events, working with and fundraising for our charity partners, matched funding for money raised by our people for their own local causes and volunteering.

A local and nationwide reach

Our charity partners

Our head office is in Milton Keynes and we are pleased to work with some great local organisations including Action4Youth and Worktree who both support young people. The Milton Keynes Food Bank, has our continued support, which is needed more than ever during these challenging economic times, and we also work with the Milton Keynes Community Foundation, which provides small grants on our behalf to local projects related to education, young people, and issues of deprivation.  

Crisis is our national charity partner and we have been supporting their important work to end homelessness since 2018 through fundraising, education, sponsorship and volunteering. 

Matched funding

As well as fundraising for our charity partners, we support colleagues fundraising for the charities that matter most to them, through our matched funding scheme.  We match fund individuals and teams of 4 or more NHBC people. 


Volunteering is an important part of how we give back and help our communities.  Everyone at NHBC can take up to two days’ paid volunteering leave every year.
