The Skill Mill will be taking part in Keep Britain Tidy's #GBSpringClean again this year. The Great British Spring Clean is about demonstrating that we care about the environment by 'pledging to pick'. Last year, more than 560,000 people took part and Keep Britain Tidy hope to see even more people getting involved this year.
The Skill Mill's main objectives are:
· Improve the flow of watercourses contributing to the reduction of flood risk and provide urban and rural environmental improvement services.
· Increase engagement, participation, employability and educational levels of the young people and move them closer to long term sustainable employment.
· Reduce re-offending and increase community safety through engagement of ex-offenders in employment.
· Demonstrate that design-thinking and co-creation through effective partnerships can result in innovative solutions to social and environmental problems and make significant savings to the state.
Taking part in environmental campaigns is a great way for us to achieve our objectives and promote the outstanding work which our young people do.
