Getting involved with the community through the Green team

Vivo Care Choices is officially launching its Green team at Grosvenor Park in Chester from 11am on Thursday 18 July.

The Green team provides volunteer services five-days-a-week, taking part in environmental, gardening and tidying-up projects across Cheshire West and Chester.

The team is already involved in a number of exciting projects, supporting local neighbourhoods, community groups and the Council. This includes maintaining and improving parks, allotments and public spaces in the Chester, Northwich, Winsford, Ellesmere Port and Neston areas.

Thirty to 40 volunteers from Vivo’s learning disability services will volunteer as part of a regular team working in the community.

The ultimate goal is to create a number of supported employment opportunities as the Green team expands its operations with other organisations and employers across the borough.

If you’d like more information or know about about exciting, long-term projects the team could get involved with, email: greenteam@vivocarechoices.co.uk.
