What we do
Proffitts aims to support local communities by helping them improve their environment and quality of lives.
By sharing our knowledge, contacts and experience, we can help communities understand the issues they face, and most importantly, the solutions that are available to them. Established in 2008, our team have a wide and varied background in community consultation and engagement, fundraising, and the management of social, physical and strategy improvement projects.
With a professional and creative approach that has been developed over many years working with the public, voluntary and community sectors, you can be confident that Proffitts can successfully deliver a wide range of projects from short term community consultations, large scale funding bids, or the production of an open space/play/youth provision strategy.
If you have a great idea that will benefit your community, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Proffitts. Any project can seem like a mountain to climb when there is so much to organise – funding, planning, designing, management etc but with our involvement, we can help you get there. Proffitts will assist you every step of the way and help you deliver that much needed project successfully.
Have a look at our Projects page to view the kind of projects we have helped deliver – yours could be the next one! If you are interested in finding out any more information on any of our project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
With less staff and dwindling budgets it’s becoming increasingly hard to deliver the basic services let alone inspire communities with innovative project work. Proffitts – Investing in Communities work alongside council staff ensuring community based project work is delivered on time and to budget. Through working in partnership, we are able to save valuable council staff hours, as well as source and secure external funding thereby ensuring that council plans and strategies still reach their objectives.

Providing quality homes and communities will only work if delivered alongside a more comfortable living environment and increased prospects for tenants.
We can work between you (the social landlord) and the tenant to identify needs and priorities at a local or even street level to ensure projects are delivered with the desired impact and benefit. Projects can be stand alone or longer term within a programme. They can range from training to community centre redevelopment, social enterprise creation to environmental projects. Involvement of local people is key to the successful delivery with the overall aim of building tenants capacity, increasing their employability, reducing anti social behaviour and reducing tenant turnover.
Through working in partnership with social landlords, we are able to save valuable staff hours in development and delivery of projects, as well as source and secure external funding ensuring that communities get stronger, safer and healthier.

How we can help..
Schools and Colleges
Improving school grounds and outdoor spaces is what Proffitts do best, whether it be an outdoor classroom, a facility for play or a simple seating area. The team at Proffitts will work with staff, parents and children to generate ideas for a design and then we can give a cost estimate with impartial advice on a wide range of products. We can even help you with fundraising and contract management when implementing the scheme, saving you time and ensuring a quality, functional scheme is delivered.
We can help many types of businesses in lots of different ways. Whether you’re a landscape contractor who needs a simple sketch design to help communicate a scheme with a client, to a developer who wants to ensure that open space is considered just as carefully as the building itself, our landscape design service could assist through consultation, design and cost estimates right through to contract management and delivery.
Invest in your own community!
More and more companies are considering the short and long term benefits that Corporate Social Responsibility brings to their organisation as well as the communities they work from. You can take the lead on how you want this to work – we are flexible.
- Staff from your organisation help deliver some elements of a project – for example: litter picking or bulb planting
- As a not-for-profit organisation, you could simply donate an amount of money to contribute to Proffitt’s running costs so we can continue to carry out our work within the community
- Another option could be to contribute to a specific project – we have around 30 projects to choose from at any one time – all in need of investment!
