Churchill Group wins dual service contract with Heathway Shopping Centre

Churchill Group has secured a three-year contract with Heathway Shopping Centre in Dagenham. The contract includes cleaning and security services delivered through Amulet and commenced at the start of the year.

Heathway Shopping Centre is a cornerstone of the local community and caters to approximately 2 million visitors annually. The centre plays a pivotal role in the area's vitality and hosts renowned brands such as Boots, Specsavers, JD Sports, Shoe Zone and Savers. It is also a key part of a wider £10 million project by Barking & Dagenham Council to redevelop the area.

Heathway Shopping Centre wanted one partner to deliver both services. Churchill Group stood out thanks to its expertise in delivering specialised security services tailored to support the unique needs of the centre. The Group has experience with shopping centres all around the country, while its security work with c2c in the local area demonstrated an understanding of the local community.

From a cleaning perspective, the centre will enjoy some continuity of service because Churchill now employs the existing group of cleaning operatives, who bring their extensive experience, to maintain the centre's cleanliness standards. The team is excited to join the company, not least because after one year of service they will all become co-owners thanks to Churchill Group’s status as an Employee Owned Trust.

Darren Read, chief operating officer at Churchill Group, said: "We are proud to support Heathway Shopping Centre and its team in ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for visitors. Our deep understanding of the local area positions us well to deliver exceptional service. The development is an exciting time for the whole community, and we’re delighted we can play our part."
