Local Community Support: How We Help

At Henderson Environmental we are committed to supporting local charities and youth organisations and we work with non-profits to ensure they can continue to help those in need.

As a team, we like to do our bit to provide local community support in any way we can, whether that’s sponsoring a club, donating funds, or fundraising to help keep a charity afloat.

The People’s Kitchen 

We recently made a donation to the People’s Kitchen, a soup kitchen and support system for homeless and vulnerable people in Newcastle Upon Tyne. 

The organisation is open on weekday evenings and weekend mornings offering hot meals and someone to talk to, which is often a lifeline for vulnerable people who are looking to enjoy food and some company in a safe space. 

The People’s Kitchen serves over 250 meals a day 365 days a year, offers clothing and toiletries, and a place to have a hot shower and freshen up for those who need it. 

The team of 230 volunteers give up over 50,000 hours of their time in total to provide a light in the dark for people in need.

Our recent donation has been put to good use at the kitchen, and we are proud to be supporting such a great cause. 

Whickham Fellside YFC 

In addition to supporting local charities, we sponsor a local youth football team, Whickham Fellside YFC Under 15 Yellows.  Whickham Fellside FC provides a safe and enjoyable environment for young ones to enjoy grassroots football. 

We are proud to support this club that helps to develop football skills in young ones aged 5 and upwards, building their confidence, encouraging them to get involved in sports, and have fun!

The team manager said, “Whickham Fellside U15 Yellows are just about to start their ninth season together, having started at age seven! Whickham Fellside FC is a very close-knit Whickham-based team where most of the boys who started on Day One are still with us today. Team spirit and the bond between the boys is very much a priority for us over “winning at all costs”, albeit the boys are naturally determined to do their best, and over the years have won leagues and have done really well winning a number of “middle level” tournaments.

The pinnacle thus far came at Easter when the team travelled to Amsterdam to take part on their first International Tour – an amazing time was had by all players (and parents), and memories were made that will last a lifetime”.

We are always looking out for ways we can provide local community support to North East based charities and causes and are proud to get involved in any way we can to help.

Close up of asbestos

"Outstanding Service"

From the enquiry to the completion of the work, the service is outstanding. All members of staff who attended the site are professional, very polite, did their work and when I asked to do any extra work, it was not a problem, they just did it.

Lena Jopling, Hutchinson Environmental Solutions, Northumberland

"Friendly and Polite"

Hendersons stripped the asbestos ceiling panels from our garage and removed the panels from site. I was very happy with the professional and efficient way in which the work was carried out. The team were very friendly and polite and they left the garage and surrounding area clean and tidy. The work area was tested by an independent company and found to be clean and free of asbestos fibres.

John Knowles, County Durham

"Completed on Time"

All the work was completed on time and to our expectations The staff were very pleasant and checked regularly that we were happy with the progress.

Tony Turnbull, Tynemouth

"Professional Approach "

We were delighted by the professional approach and customer service that Henderson provided. From the onset, they demonstrated a highly structured and well-planned approach. This was also seen in how they approached the work on-site, as staff were professional, and friendly but also very concerned to do the right job. An excellent service at a reasonable price.

Peter Upton, Hexham

"Expert Knowledge"

I received excellent service from everyone at Henderson as all team members are friendly, helpful, and professional. I would recommend Henderson Environmental to anyone with an asbestos issue and on the strength of the great job that they did, if I ever need soundproofing I would go straight to them.

G Parker, Newcastle Upon Tyne

"Clean and Efficient Job"

Ian and his team provided us with an excellent service at a competitive price compared to others. The team were fantastic, arriving on time and working continuously to get the job done. Once completed they showed me the area they had cleared and it had been done to a very high standard, all materials were taken away and the area was thoroughly cleaned. I would highly recommend to all.

Sam Benfield, Newcastle Upon Tyne

"Stress-Free Removal "

When I was first told I had asbestos I was concerned mostly about what it meant to remove it and how destructive the process would be. I needn’t have worried as the team were in and out really quickly, working professionally, and that took all of the stress out of the situation. Thanks for a fantastic job guys!

Adrian Young, Whitley Bay

"Limited Disturbance"

We owe a huge thanks to Ian and the team for making the asbestos removal go so easily and to plan. The impact to tenants has been as minimal as possible and the asbestos skip was removed immediately. The job couldn’t have gone better and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Neil Joslin, The Gateshead Housing Company

"Efficient and On-Time"

I needed a job done quickly and the team came out to give me a quote the following day ad provided the estimate a day later. The work was completed within the estimated time frame and given that it involved removing a ceiling and taking the wall back to brick, we expected a mess but all of the waste was removed and not even a spec of dust was left behind. It’s rare these days to find a company that surpasses expectations and these guys do just that.

Christina Porter, Whickham, Newcastle Upon Tyne

"Safe and Collaborative Team"

The Henderson team were very easy to talk to and it was simple to schedule the removal to suit our calendar. The team on-site worked with our roofers to make sure the building was watertight by the end of the day. All in all Ian and the company were great to work with.
