We’re proud to have been working with Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) for over 10 years on a range of partnership projects.

Together, we help make neighbourhoods safer, attractive and more resilient to the effects of climate change and support residents improve their prospects, their well-being and lift them out of fuel poverty.

Here’s a snapshot of some of the work we’ve done together:

Making Mitchell Gardens more resilient

After consulting with local residents, our landscaping team helped transform an unused greenspace in Wythenshawe, brightening it up with wildflower turf and a fruit orchard; improving its use for the community, whilst also making it more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Fencing & Landscaping contract

Our landscaping team were awarded WCHG’s paths and driveways contract in 2019, followed by the fencing contract in 2021. Our team of labourers carry out a range of activities including relaying driveways, clearing gardens and installing fencing and gates.

The contract is linked with our employment programmes, providing work placement and job opportunities for people facing multiple challenges starting work.

Construction employment

Walney Road Woodland Brook Clean-Up

Responding to calls from residents, Groundwork coordinated a huge clean up event with City of Trees, Manchester City Council, Wythenshawe Community Housing Group and Wythenshawe Waste Warriors to help bring the local woodlands back into use.

Providing support to tackle fuel poverty

Our Energyworks team provide front-line training to WCHG’s staff so they can identify residents living in fuel poverty and are able to signpost them to our support services.
