Places for People is delighted to be part of the Positive Pathway Alliance. The aim of our Young Persons Strategy is to provide opportunities to support young people on a journey through disaffection, poor educational attainment and limited aspirations through a process of engagement, diversionary activities, personal skills development and training and employment support. Membership of the Alliance supports this by enabling us to share information and resources with other local organisations providing services in the Northamptonshire area.
We are currently working closely with partners in Service Six in Wellingborough to provide facilities and funding for two youth groups, funding a graffiti project and a youth award scheme. This promotes positive behaviour of young people, offers diversionary activities and provides a safe place to play and meet.

With manufacturing sites located around the world including our new ventures in Canada, South America and India, we manufacture, sell and distribute a wide range of synthetic resins and polymers to many different markets and have built a reputation for innovation, quality and excellent customer service.
Our 2020 Vision:
"A sustainable company nurturing our Core Businesses, but focused on International growth in specialities; thriving because of the commitment and excellence of our people."
Scott Bader was founded in 1921 and conventionally managed for 30 years.
However Ernest Bader, the founder, was never comfortable with a capitalist governance structure. Having become Quakers, Ernest and his family believed that ethical and moral action to improve this world was vital. For many years they sought a 'third way' of distributing the capital of the company in a less divisive manner and a method by which all employees could have a 'real' say in the company. They believed that labour should employ capital, acknowledging the equality of everyone as individuals and that only a restructure of the way industry was managed would bring this about.
In 1951 a radical decision was made resulting in the creation of The Scott Bader Commonwealth, which was founded on Quaker Principles.
Links to these principles are at the core of Scott Bader and include:- the development of individuals (to achieve their full potential); equal opportunities (workplace benefits available to everyone); involvement and participation (everyone having a voice); the chance to be involved in social/ community activities; responsibility for one’s own actions; leading by example and resolving conflicts non-violently through dialogue.
These principles changed the fundamental structure of the company and shared out the responsibility for its long term future to its workforce. It is a prime example of how a business can be run differently, while also being successful.
Ernest Bader's Socio-Economic Vision:
The Commonwealth was “founded on the belief that a socially responsible undertaking cannot exist merely in its own interests. It is part of the whole national and international community and as such it has responsibilities which extend far beyond its factory walls”.
Common-ownership or ‘trusteeship’ was conceived “as an alternative to a war-based capitalist economy on the one hand and to communism on the other”.
The founders envisaged a “leadership founded on approval rather than dictation”; and a turning away from “participation in industrial strife and international war; and a refusal to take an active part in re-armament”
(Preamble to the Constitution - April 1951).
The ambition was “to provide opportunity for the full development of us all, both materially and spiritually”. “Mutual responsibility must permeate the whole community of work and be upheld by democratic participation and the principle of trusteeship” (Foreword to the revised Constitution – March 1963).
The companies in the Scott Bader Group are the means to fulfil the vision and to show that business can make the world a better place.
RICHMOND VILLAGES (Part of Bupa) have Award-winning retirement villages across the UK providing more than just retirement living. Richmond Villages offer an aspirational lifestyle where quality facilities, like-minded people and a safe and secure environment are all central to happiness and well-being....as part of Bupa, the global healthcare provider, our purpose is simple: longer, healthier, happier lives!

Richmond Northampton has several beautiful function rooms available to hire and we are happy to offer these facilities at no cost.
Since Richmond Northampton opened in 2007 we have supported and held numerous events to raise money and have responded to appeals for specific items for many charities over the years and we look forward to working closely with PPA in the future with the common aim of providing a better future for all...
