Our Green Teams create better and greener places while providing team members the opportunity to learn new skills, gain qualifications and improve their employment prospects.
We offer structured programmes that enable young people to carry out real and valuable environmental improvements in neighbourhoods, while learning new skills, gaining qualifications and enhancing employment prospects.
Green Team members are often young, unemployed and lacking experience and qualifications. We give them the tools to do the job - and their local neighbourhoods and customers see the benefits on the ground. From grass cutting to woodland management, play equipment inspections to snow clearance, the teams respond directly to issues identified by local people swiftly and professionally.
We are already working with major employers like The Landscape Group to form Green Teams of young apprentices.
It's a practical expression of our commitment to help 10,000 people into employment, education or training and improve 1,000 green spaces across the UK to benefit one million by 2015.
Expanding Green Teams
We are already achieving great things the Green Team initiative, but we want to do even more. New partnerships with the private, public and voluntary sectors will support us to help Green Teams across the country to continue to flourish and grow.
