it’s not just your business we care about

Corporate Social Responsibility

Everyone who works for Matthews & Goodman knows and understands that we have a responsibility, as a firm and as individuals, to manage the social, environmental and economic impact of everything we do, as well as the impact of the advice we give.

The cornerstones of our CSR philosophy are Charity, People, Clients, Community and Environment.

Charity

We help local charities through our corporate donations, employee volunteering and supporting our employees' personal fundraising activities. 

Our current nominated charities are

Liverpool - Papyrus UK

PAPYRUS is the national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide.

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. Every year many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

London - The Childhood Trust

The Childhood Trust funds grassroots charities and their projects to alleviate the impact of child poverty in London.  Every child has the right to a safe and happy childhood so we partner with and fund the very best initiatives and projects.

 

London - Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity

Every day, 619 children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs.

 

Manchester - The Children's Adventure Farm Trust

For terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children in the North West.

Set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, our 17th century Farmhouse with surrounding 10 acres of land is the perfect place for deserving children of all abilities to play, laugh and simply enjoy being children.

People

As an employer, we are dedicated to a sustainable policy of diversity and equal opportunities.

Underpinning our 'People Strategy' is a fundamental belief that our remit is to help every person who works for Matthews & Goodman reach their full potential. This is achieved by an integrated programme of appraisals, training, mentoring and creating opportunities for self-advancement.

Clients

Our relationship with clients is underpinned by a value system based on professionalism, integrity and transparency.

To ensure the service we deliver meets the most stringent quality standards, we are audited by external organisations such as:

  • DNV GL: we have held ISO 9001 certification since 2006
  • The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Community

As part of our commitment to the communities we live and work in we:

  • Offer work experience and run a comprehensive Professional and Business Training Programme for newly qualified graduates
  • Support local charities through fundraising and volunteer initiatives.

Environment

As part of our commitment to minimise the impact of our activities on the environment, we:

  • Comply with all relevant environmental legislation
  • Incorporate environmental and sustainability considerations in our day-to-day activities, particularly focusing on reducing the use of materials, and maximising energy efficiency and recycling activities
  • Provide our clients with the best advice to ensure that they are aware of the environmental impact of their (property related) actions and decisions.
