Managing clean streets and green space in your neighbourhoods.
At a time when public services in the places we live and work are being severely cut, it is more important than ever to manage the local environment around neighbourhoods efficiently and effectively. Changes in the social housing sector brought new standards to be met by social housing providers and opportunities to impact on the management of estates and neighbourhoods. Keep Britain Tidy is a well-known for expertise in managing cleanliness of streets and open spaces and also for working with communities on initiatives and campaigns. This course utilises this expertise and draws on research and practical programmes to inform the content.
