Charity

Partnership with Forever Manchester

Forever Manchester are a fantastic local charity that funds and supports a wide range of community projects across Greater Manchester. Rather than tackling one particular issue, the charity support a variety of different people through a wealth of activities and organisations, from funding social projects for the elderly to helping disabled people get involved with different sports.

Since 1989, Forever Manchester has delivered a noteworthy £36m into community projects across Manchester; through getting involved with their fundraising events and organising our own, we hope to push this figure as high as possible.

  • A big thank you to RECLAIM

    From 2016 until mid-2017, we worked with RECLAIM to help support young people across Manchester from working class communities. Coming from a working class background himself, Stephen Beech was lucky to have a stable, supportive family to remain focused on working hard for what he believed in. Other bright young people from the same background don’t always have that chance. This is where RECLAIM does a great job. The charity aspires young people to do positive things and earn confidence to get their voice heard. We’d like to thank RECLAIM for all of their hard work in transforming the lives of young people and for being a brilliant charity to work with.

  • A big thank you to RECLAIM
    • Our Awards

      The Beech group of companies is proud to have won a number of prestigious awards and be recognised by several respected organisations in the property, energy efficiency and construction industry.

      “My aim has always been to create affordable, but also premium, apartments with tenants in mind for the increasing demand of educated young people living in our city. Creating developments in key areas, opens up opportunities for global investment, so that not only does the Manchester economy benefit from the infrastructure, but this capital appreciation is shared with my co-investors and partners.”
