Nominate a Worthy Cause for Novus’ Build Back Better Challenge

Nominate a Worthy Cause for Novus’ Build Back Better
14 October 2021

Novus Property Solutions is offering support for a good cause, community project or charity.

Throughout 2021, the construction contractor is choosing community projects that embody one of their three key focus areas: poverty, wellbeing, and environment.

A cause is chosen each quarter to receive Novus’ support, and submissions are now open for Q4.


Mosaic LGBT+ Young Persons' Trust


Q3’s worthy winner was Mosaic LGBT+ Young Persons' Trust, a Greater London charity offering a range of services to support members of the LGBT+ community and their families. 

They provide accessible activities, programmes and services that aim to empower community members, provide essential resources, advocate for young LGBT+ rights, and embrace, promote and endorse the diversity of young people.  

As a charity, Mosaic is committed to building an LGBT+ community that is strong and cohesive, where people feel safe, free from prejudice, and have space to thrive. A community where every LGBT+ young person feels empowered, inspired, and proud to be who they are.

Novus’ Leighton Buzzard team will be completing improvement works to the community centre currently used as the charity’s base for all activities and support. The centre needs a complete refurbishment, while also requiring urgent repair to damage from a leaking roof before the winter months. 

As a business, Novus is committed to creating a diverse workforce that reflects the customers they work with and the communities they serve, and as such are working to shape their inclusion strategy.


Nominations for the 4th Build Back Challenge Now Open
