The Sureserve Foundation has been inspired by the hard work and vision of the late Steve Rawlings, founder of construction firm Lakehouse and training-focused social enterprise Building Lives.
The Sureserve Foundation exists to warm the communities in the UK served by our public and private buildings.
The Sureserve Group is a leading asset and energy support services group that performs critical functions in homes, public and commercial buildings, with a focus on clients in the UK public sector and regulated markets.
As a group, our mission is to provide exceptional services to homes, businesses and communities in the UK, making them safe, warm and sustainable through responsible business. The services we provide include energy efficiency services, renewable technologies and smart metering services as well as planned and responsive maintenance, installation, and repair services in the areas of gas, fire and electrical, water and air hygiene and lifts.
So too, this is true of our Foundation. We understand many of the individuals and families we serve face challenges to their everyday well-being, unjustly and unfairly as a result of fuel poverty and energy inefficiency. We are here to create warmer communities.
Fuel poverty and energy efficiency
Our Foundation supports individuals, families and communities achieve fuel efficiency and in turn, lessen the financial burden of high gas and electric bills. We work with industry partners to achieve our goals.
