Crisis and Berkeley Foundation

Berkeley Group and Crisis

 

The Berkeley Group, a FTSE 100 property developer creating successful and sustainable places in London, Birmingham and the South of England, established the Berkeley Foundation in 2011. So far, we have committed over £15m to local communities, reaching 17,500 people. More than 60% of Berkeley staff are involved in our work, raising £4.4 million in total, and volunteering over 10,000 hours every year.
Since 2013, the Berkeley Foundation and Crisis - the national charity for homeless people - have been working together through a major Strategic Partnership with three aims: 
•Supporting people who have experienced homelessness to get back into work; 
•Supporting homeless young people to access stable tenancies in the private rented sector;
•Engaging Berkeley staff with the issue of homelessness.
In 2018, as a result of the partnership, 87 people accessed education, employment or training, with 37 moving into jobs. 20 young people were housed, and over 90% sustained their tenancies. And more Berkeley staff were involved in Crisis's flagship events Square Mile Run and Crisis at Christmas than ever before.
This is a long-term, collaborative partnership having a genuine impact on homelessness in London.
