Community Enterprise

Contributing to community cohesion and regeneration

Community Enterprise


Local Support

We prioritise local resources and labour and network with Enterprise & Employment Training partners, education providers; NGOs and charities. We pride ourselves on the added value our managed properties bring to communities and our contribution to growth and regeneration.

Our Guardians have a broad range of skills across the public, private and third sector industries and we encourage them to lend­ a hand through volunteering their time, knowledge and expertise.

We support Traineeships, Apprentices and Work experience by:

  • Giving young people who are out of work for more than two years the opportunity of work experience
  • Providing structured working taster days that boost confidence and self esteem
  • Supporting job finders employability skills, confidence and self esteem
  • Helping vulnerable woman return to work by providing opportunities to work in a supportive environment

We offer new Graduates the opportunity to work with us to increase their knowledge and skills and gain valuable experience in building their careers.

Creatives

If you are an artist, film maker, writer or involved in the Visual or Expressive Arts, living in a commercial building as a Property Guardian can provide you with a studio, workshop or creative space. If you are looking for a location for filming, photo shoots or creative events we could have the perfect space for you.

Blue Door welcomes those who are involved in innovative creative Community Arts projects.

Sustainability

         

Blue Door believes in supporting social enterprises that create jobs, training and volunteering opportunities for people in the local community, and we continue to purchase resources from those enterprises who are re-using, recycling or up-cycling clean materials that we can use in our refurbishment and building projects. We aim to reduce our carbon footprint and lessen our impact on the local environment.
