idverde is committed to delivering a service for local people, by local people. To aid this, idverde has committed to providing a horticultural apprentice, and work experience opportunities for local people, and will be participating in Wealden District Council’s employability schemes.

We will also work with Wealden residents and the Council throughout the life of the contract to establish and manage Friends groups for urban sites that do not have an organised group, ensuring that these groups are fully inclusive so that residents od all ages and abilities can take part.

idverde’s Community Investment Fund will be open to all Wealden’s community groups to provide grants to local projects that improve the quality/accessibility of local greenspaces.
