521 Program

Our 521 program centers around offering free skilled labour, paid volunteers and cash payments to homeless charities.

The campaign name comes from a pledge by our senior management to provide skilled labour for up to five hours for free for each of our engineers; to offer two paid volunteering days a year from all members of its office based staff and donate 1% of our profits annually to selected homelessness charities.

For over 15 years, Prima has worked closely with local authorities and residents to improve people’s standard of living through quality affordable housing but there are still thousands of homeless families with children in the UK. We want to do what we can to improve that.

Our current supported charities are:

  • Porchlight – “We are one of the foremost charities supporting vulnerable and homeless people in Kent and Medway. We have supported accommodation services in Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Margate, Ramsgate and Tonbridge, a homelessness prevention service and a dedicated rough sleeper team. We provide a range of services supporting people with complex needs, with specialist services for young people, ex-offenders and people with enduring mental health issues.”
