Building & Sustaining Communities

A culture of growth, support, sustainability and giving

Our environment

Whilst our job is to manage properties, our delivery and reception of that service is all about the people that work in the organisation, and the people who live in the buildings. To ensure the success of Crabtree and the communities we're building, it is essential that we carefully manage our impact on the environment to create a sustainable future for all our stakeholders. We're proud to be able to state that we are now accredited as being a 'Carbon Neutral' company.

Our Crabtree colleagues

Crabtree staff enjoy a work environment that recognises achievement and encourages personal and professional growth and we believe in having a little fun along the way. With a structured approach to training, everyone can achieve career progression in property management. Crabtree Management adopts an 'open-door' policy, which gives staff every opportunity to discuss things that matter to them, and we actively encourage break-out sessions during the week to allow for some downtime and recharge of batteries.

The health and wellbeing of our property services' teams are important and there is support available for both physical and mental health issues, including check-in facilities for work-related stress.

Our property customers & clients

All of our customers and clients benefit from a transparent, fair and ethical service, particularly in light of the legal and regulatory environment in which we work.

All property owners can be confident that we will provide a safe environment for the homes we manage thanks to our health and safety management system, contractor accreditation and internal practices. Crabtree also ensures that we engage cost-effective services to protect and enhance the value of those properties.

The communities we serve

We try to give something back to our local community, and indeed to causes that are close to the hearts of our staff. We support local sports clubs, schools and a range of charities. Over the past 10 years, we have raised over £85,000 for a number of charities.

We do this through organising and taking part in a wide variety of events run by our staff. In 2015, we won a national award for a small business working with a charity The Lullaby Trust.

Our supply chain

We engage thousands of property contractors on behalf of our clients. We prefer to engage smaller, local contractors as they tend to provide higher quality service and better value for money and build long-term relationships which make for better, more efficient solutions for home clients and customers. This, in turn, also supports the local communities we serve.

Crabtree supports our supply chain with a fair and reasonable accreditation programme and provides additional support for health and safety and compliance where needed.
