The contract is aimed at improving the economic, social and environmental well-being of the local community.
What did you do?
In addition to maintenance of the Bolton at Home estate, social value will be generated through offering apprenticeships to local residents in amenity horticulture leading to a recognised NVQ Level 2 qualification. Local residents will be given priority for new employment opportunities provided by Glendale Services.
Glendale Services will also work closely with Bolton at Home’s “Transforming Estates” initiative, which aims to regenerate ex-council estates through social value generation. Glendale Services will be involved in assisting with “green” community projects. Glendale staff will participate in the “give and gain” scheme, where staff volunteer to enhance the local environment.
