The Greenscape story

Futures set up Greenscape as a standalone social enterprise company in 2011. It was created to not only provide grounds maintenance and other services to the Group, but also to provide employment opportunities for local people.

Over the first five years it expanded its areas of work to include cleaning and painting empty properties and communal areas, garden clearance, tree care and a handyman service.  

Greenscape employed 67 seasonal workers in its first five years alone - 17 of whom went on to become full-time employees. It also offered services to other organisations.

Greenscape was hugely successful and while the company (and name) were absorbed into our repairs and maintenance team in 2020, the work continues.

Also check out our Screening Room page where you will find a video produced to mark the fifth anniversary of Greenscape's creation.

Mug featuring Greenscape branding

Everyone needs some refreshment when they're working hard so we made sure our Greenscape had their own branded mugs to enjoy a nice hot brew.

And to celebrate Greenscape's fifth birthday in 2016 we even produced these limited edition mugs to mark the occasion.

Helping others has always been important to everyone at Futures - the Greenscape team included. Here's two of the team delivering a cheque for over £600 raised to support a local school.

Keeping lawns and outdoor spaces in tip-top condition was a big part of the work of the Greenscape team and still an important service we provide today.
