Helping residents of local hostels | In the Community

BD Group in the Community

BD Group is an independent commercial company that is wholly owned by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, which combines the best experience from the private sector with the ethos and care of the public sector service and all our profits are invested back into the people and communities in which we serve, fully supporting the wellbeing of the Borough of Barking & Dagenham.

We strive to improve the environment in which we live and work whilst caring about the communities where we operate. We deliver meaningful social value and improve people’s lives in the communities. We develop social value plans, in partnership with our clients, to deliver long-term, sustainable outcomes. We proactively look to offer employment and training opportunities to local people and support initiatives to provide employment opportunities to young and disadvantaged people.

We aim to improve the overall health of the Borough by investing in the development of our team, teaching life skills, such as cooking, through after school classes and delivering workshops to promote good health across the community. 

Helping residents of local hostels

Thanks to the generosity of staff and suppliers, BD Group delivered 190 Christmas hampers to residents of four hostels across Barking and Dagenham just before Christmas 2020. The hampers were entirely made up of treats and food donated by BD Group staff and our suppliers.

The team delivered the hampers containing food, toiletries, Christmas treats, books, toys, nappies and baby food to residents of Butler Court Hostel, Boundary Road Hostel, Riverside Hostel and Brockelbank Lodge. The residents were overwhelmed to receive them, and were very grateful for the generosity of everyone who made a donation, or gave up their time to make up and deliver the hampers.

Our suppliers were very generous in supporting this campaign and BD Group would like to thank J H Cleaning Services for donating money which we used to purchase sweets, Global Pharma Direct for donating masks, hand sanitiser, selection packs and a variety of cakes, biscuits and sweets, Thomas Ridley Foodservice for donating chocolate, Christmas puddings and orange juice, TWO Services for donating selection boxes and Capital for donating washing up liquid.

BD Group and its staff are committed to supporting the local community and people in need, and this was just one example of our teams coming together to help those who need a bit of extra support or Christmas Cheer.
