It’s been a busy and successful year for Groundwork SY.
Our NCS delivery partner, Element Society, is the Number 1 NCS provider in Yorkshire having delivered 159% of its targeted contract.
We have given out £300,000 in donations to improve local green spaces across Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield through the Tesco Bags of Help grant scheme.
In Barnsley we have created 60 new allotment plots, saved over £15,500 in water bills, and made 96 homes safer and more energy efficient through our Safer, Warmer, Homes project. This year at Rabbit Ings we have organised more activities than ever before, enabling thousands of people to visit the park, as well as welcoming the return of wildlife including deer and barn owls.
In October, we saw the end of our Community Work Placements programme that saw 370 job-seekers gain valuable work experience with local community organisations. While through Talent Match and Talent Match Enterprise, we have helped a number of young people find their potential and given them routes to employment through skill building, guidance and opportunity.
