Our Social Enterprise of the Week:
Newground are a social enterprise delivering a range of professional services that benefit the community and the environment.
Their Vision / Mission:
Newground are an environmental organisation delivering social and environmental services and projects. Their mission is to help local people and communities, while at the same time focusing on the environment. They aim to build sustainable communities, create better neighbourhoods, and give people the skills they need to live and work in a greener way.
What really sets Newground apart from their competitors is that instead of their profits going to shareholders, they are donated to Newground’s charity Newground Together. The funds are then used in community projects that create positive social and environmental change. Newground offer services in community support and training, employment, flood resistance, landscape architecture, environmental education, and health and safety training. All of which are delivered in a safe and sustainable way.
Why We Chose Them:
It’s fantastic to see all the hard work Newground are doing to help their community and the environment. Their environmental education programmes are a great idea and mean that children and adults can connect with nature and learn to take action to protect their own local environment.
Another way Newground are benefiting their community is through their ReUse centre. Here they recycle white goods, furniture and other household items and offer them for sale at affordable prices.
Newground’s charity Newground Together have also been working hard helping those in need during the Coronavirus Crisis. Their food bank has helped many people who are struggling, and they have also been delivering food parcels to some of the most vulnerable in their communities.
