The Jericho Foundation has been named as one of four Social Value partners in the development and long-term legacy of Peddimore, delivered by IM Properties.

Jericho, alongside the other partners, will work to ensure that marginalised people from across Birmingham are able to access employment and opportunities throughout the development and construction stages, and beyond.

David Smith, planning director at IM Properties said: “We are delighted to be working with these four well-respected Social Value partners, who are already making a big impact in the communities they work with and can help to ensure our contributions return maximum results.”

“Our Social Value pledge at Peddimore will be on a number of levels, both time and money and everyone who works on the scheme is signing up to make a difference.”

Richard Beard, Chief Executive of the Jericho Foundation, said: “We are delighted to be working with IM Properties on the Peddimore development; this is a great example of how a commercial business can create a Social Value legacy from a large project, and support marginalised people to gain employment and skills that they would not normally have access to.”

“Jericho has been supporting marginalised people for over 25 years, and we look forward to seeing Peddimore go from strength to strength.”
