COMMUNITY

The communities in which we operate are hugely important to us. They are where our employees and our future employees live. While many Forterra employees are active members of their communities, organising and participating in activities and events, we want to make it easy for local charities, clubs and groups to approach us directly for support. To facilitate this, we have established the Forterra Community Fund along with a dedicated webpage and online application form. Read about the Forterra Community Fund and how to apply.

For many years, we have championed construction colleges, providing much-needed materials for bricklaying courses to support the next generation of bricklayers. We are now taking this one step further and are inviting colleges to apply to become one of our Construction Hubs. As well as receiving a donation of bricks, they will also receive London Brick branded merchandise and the opportunity for their students to gain valuable exposure to some of the industry’s leading experts. Read more about our Construction Hubs here.
