Proud to be Quality of Life Foundation Partners
We’re pleased to announce that we have become partners with the Quality of Life Foundation, the UK charity focused on raising people’s quality of life and wellbeing across the built environment.
Core partners and supporters provide funding or pro bono support to help Quality of Life Foundation carry out core charitable objectives. Partners also fulfil the role of industry leaders, demonstrating their commitment to improving quality of life across the country. We are providing the Foundation with office space to enable it to carry out its charitable work with smaller overheads.
Matthew Morgan, Director of Quality of Life Foundation, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Civic Engineers on board as a core partner. The Quality of Life Foundation works to ensure health and wellbeing are prioritised in the way the UK creates and cares for homes and neighbourhoods. By partnering with Civic Engineers, we’re highlighting the fact that it is not simply house builders and developers who have a role to play in shaping the lives of residents in the homes that are built. There is a much wider community of professionals within the built environment industry whose work can positively impact on people’s quality of life. Civic Engineers embodies that, and we’re proud to call the company our partner.”
Our Director, Paul Morris commented: “The Quality of Life Foundation is committed to helping the built environment industry focus on how it can benefit people’s health and wellbeing in the long term. This focus aligns with our vision of having a positive impact on the environment and enabling people to lead healthier and happier lives. It also aligns with our values, a key one of which is collaboration. We’re pleased to become a core partner as it is only by sharing best practice, taking part in research, and working together, that the industry can make real change and put wellbeing and people-centred design at the heart of our work.”
This partnership underscores the Foundation’s commitment to improving the quality of life in communities across the country by fostering collaboration and promoting people-centric design within the built environment industry.
The support of partners helps the Foundation to do vital work that isn’t funded through specific projects. These include undertaking research and sharing best practice (through reports such as Creating Healthy Places Through Planning, Creating Community Through Construction and an upcoming one on biodiversity net gain), running events like its upcoming Symposium and managing its Associates’ network. The latter two strands bring together professionals with expertise from across the built environment, social value, wellbeing and healthcare to discuss solutions that will help create positive change in the way the UK creates and cares for homes and neighbourhoods.
