The Go Green project engages tenants of all ages living in the Hattersley area to improve their local environment and assist with ongoing regeneration of the estate.

The project utilises the green spaces in the area to increase community engagement with nature and helps to addresses skills, learning and employment issues in the community, building local people’s capacity to improve their environment.

A stronger local community

We work with new and established community groups and organisations in Hattersley to help build their capacity.

Together, we work to develop a programme of sustainable activities for the area which help to:

  • Increase usage of existing community spaces
  • Increase interest and support for regeneration work
  • Improve residents well-being and mental health
  • Improve residents’ skills and employment prospects
  • Reduce litter and fly tipping
  • Engage young people in community events

Our events programme includes activities covering topics such as grow your own vegetables, reducing your waste and the benefits of outdoor play.

For upcoming public events please visit our events calendar.

Training and employment

Attendance and engagement in the various project opportunities can help to increase local residents practical, time management, organisation and other work based skills.

With support from the Work and Skills Coach at Onward Homes we ensure tenants understand the value of their new skill set and we help signpost them onto further training and employment opportunities.
