Aran Duggan Head of Property & Environment at charitable trust, ExtraCare, answers a Q&A about how the charity is focussing on sustainability.
Hardev Thandy is Head of Growth and Construction for ExtraCare. Here he discusses the changes in the development process over ExtraCare’s 35 years, his greatest successes, and how he sees the future of development within the charity.
In honour of Volunteers’ Week, we sat down with our Charity Volunteers Lead; Chrissie Morris, to discuss the importance of volunteering, on both a personal level and for charities as a whole.
It’s a big team effort at ExtraCare. There are three Housing Officers including myself. I love what we do. I love going around the Schemes and Villages and meeting the local staff. I think most of the time the local staff don’t realise what a good job they do. I think sometimes they need to be reminded of that.
I love what ExtraCare does and fully endorse its philosophy. Over the years I have heard so many life changing stories from our residents and feel privileged being part of a forward thinking charity. I have also been very lucky to have worked with such a great bunch of supportive people at Head Office.
Working for ExtraCare feels like you are part of something bigger. It feels like we are all a big family. For anyone considering applying for a role at ExtraCare, you are making the right choice.

"I am a mind-body expert. I teach slow, mindful accessible yoga, breathing practices, and meditation that helps my students learn techniques to support life’s challenges."
"If residents feel they could benefit from having contact with the students while they are present on site, have a chat with the Wellbeing Advisor who can help put you in touch with them, or alternatively feel free to approach them while they are around the village."
"I’m doing my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh at school and my dad mentioned that ExtraCare were looking for volunteers to help at Solihull, so that seemed ideal."
