United Living Property Services leads a ‘groundforce’ style makeover of charity organisation
At United Living Group we are fully committed to delivering industry leading social impact that positively contributes to meeting the needs of the communities and contracts we serve.
Working in partnership with Masbro Centre in London, a team from United Living Property Services spent time transforming an overgrown open space into a community garden for local people to enjoy.
The volunteers built new planters, provided new greenery and garden furniture to provide an outdoor space that will allow the local community to enjoy a pleasant environment to spend time in.
Masbro Centre is part of the Urban Partnership Group is a charity organisation aiming to improve health and wellbeing of the local community in Hammersmith and Fulham.
To encourage biodiversity and activity, a Bug Hotel has also been created using a collection of recyclable and sustainable items. These will provide a place for insects to thrive and is an innovative use of unwanted items.
Sharon Douglas, Community Development Manager, United Living Property Services, said: “The Masbro Centre Urban Partnership is a wonderful charity that acts as a hub for the community to come together and receive both support and invaluable social experiences. We are delighted to be involved in improving their outdoor space and look forward to potting flowers amongst other activities in the coming weeks.”
Hollie Broom, Senior Youth Worker, Masbro Centre, said: “Bringing in Sharon and Kyla’s expertise and support into our programme has really made a difference to the space and the diversity of the opportunities available for the Young people who attend. Our Juniors (8-12yr olds) in particular loved being involved in this project. I’m pretty sure work in the Garden area will become a familiar project in youth club sessions”.
Activities at the Masbro Centre include a Children’s Centre, Parenting Programmes, Youth Club, Adult Learning, Employment Service and Health and Fitness Classes.
