We’re a business with a conscience. Did you know, Andrews is owned by two charitable trusts? We’ve set ourselves up this way to bring integrity, entrepreneurship and longevity to our mission of providing people with homes.
In fact, our desire to be a force for good goes all the way back to our founder, Cecil Jackson Cole. He was the driving force behind Oxfam and other well-known charities. And he is the reason we direct a significant amount of money towards causes that tackle shelter, education or business challenges.
The idea that becoming a commercial success should benefit society was close to our founder’s heart – and it remains central to our business to this day.
To celebrate turning 70, we're giving back, creating opportunities, and #openingdoors. We're working in partnership with local charities, to support young people in need of housing, by providing 50 properties over the next 50 years, where they can receive ongoing support and maintenance.
