Last year we asked you to help set our new

objectives for the next four years, and

your ideas and views have helped shape

our plan.

Overwhelmingly, you told us the area you live, and not just

your home, is important to you. You want clean, tidy and safe

spaces outside your front door.

We have already started to make this happen by setting up

a brand new Neighbourhood Services team. This team has

brought together the skills and experience of caretakers,

cleaners, managers and trades-people into one team

dedicated to investing in your environments.

Developing local partnerships is key in achieving

this. Recently, Selby Court in Scunthorpe saw archways

repainted, leaves cleared from paths and pathways edged

back to their original width. This work was carried out in

partnership with the Probation Service, and has helped

the area to look fresh and welcoming whilst importantly

engaging with the local community.

Princes Trust

A project of painting archways and clearing courtyards of

leaves and weeds was completed in New Westcliff.

Overall, nine archways and 11 courtyards were worked on by

students and supervisors from the Princes Trust.

Once the work was completed, two students were

provided with the opportunity of two weeks

work placement with the team, and an awards

evening was also held to celebrate the fantastic work done

by everyone involved.

Volunteers

The team also provide work placements for a number of

volunteers through our Employment Support team.

This helps to provide people with work, improves their

confidence and self-esteem, and gives them a number of

skills in helping out in the community.

Six volunteers have been provided with

full-time employment as a result of the partnership.
