The Fosters Estate in Hendon is one of Barnet’s largest and is part of a new construction project which will deliver 142 new homes. The homes are being built for Sage Homes, by contractors Hill Group, with Barnet Homes managing the process. 82 homes will be for shared ownership, while 60 will be for Barnet Homes’ allocations.

Barnet Homes and Hill are committed to supporting and empowering local residents throughout the construction process, and we are delighted to share some of the ways which Hill is delivering at the Fosters Estate.

The cornerstone of Hill’s efforts lies in its dedication to apprenticeships and career development. With 11 apprenticeships taking place on-site to date, the company is on track to meet its target of 13, demonstrating a proactive approach to nurturing future talent. 

Beyond apprenticeships, Hill is actively engaged in providing career guidance and support to local schools and colleges. Through over 200 hours of Careers Information, Advice, and Guidance (CIAG), the company has empowered students to unlock their potential and prepare for the job market. From mentoring programs to industry forums, Hill ensures that students receive relevant education and support for their career aspirations.

However, Hill’s commitment extends beyond the younger generation. A planned CIAG event for unemployed adults exemplifies their dedication to supporting individuals at every stage of their career journey. 

Moreover, Hill is actively bridging the gap between employment and the community, with three residents from the Fosters Estate gaining employment opportunities. As they continue to explore further employment prospects, Hill reaffirms its pledge to creating inclusive growth within the communities it serves.

In addition to workforce development, Hill is also enriching the community through cultural initiatives. From sponsoring community awards to collaborating on projects, the company fosters a sense of belonging and pride among residents.

By investing in people and partnerships, Hill not only builds homes but also cultivates thriving communities for generations to come. Barnet Homes is proud to be helping Hill deliver such positive outcomes for local residents.
