Community Benefits

Trams to Newhaven are committed to maximising the social, economic and environmental benefits through the delivery of the project. 

Our community benfits programme will work across seven categories:

  1. Employability and skills
  2. Education and outreach
  3. Community cohesion
  4. Sponsorship and funding
  5. Fair working practices
  6. Supply chain and business collaboration
  7. Innovative practices

We are keen to engage with the wider community including

  • schools
  • colleges
  • universities
  • local charities
  • employability organisations
  • social enterprises. 

Our staff have engaged with schools on a range of curriculum supported activities. These activities promote careers in construction to students and share information about the Trams to Newhaven project.  As part of our commitment to increase social value, we will be carrying out various community engagements and learning activities throughout the duration of the project.
