Our Impact

We take pride in the support we give to the tens of thousands of dedicated volunteers—each one playing their part in helping to make positive changes in their communities.

By working together we are inspiring a movement of people changing behaviours and creating a positive future for us all.

Clean Ups

Through BIG Spring Clean, Clean Coasts Week and Big Beach Clean (2019) :

130,892 volunteers collected
45,074 bags of litter
273 metric tonnes of rubbish collected

That's equivalent to approximately 22 Ulsterbuses!

Adopt A Spot

297 spots are currently looked after through the Adopt A Spot programme and that number continues to grow each month!

In one year these groups will have carried out approximately 2,376 hours of volunteer time (each group carries out 4 clean ups a year) and most will have gone above and beyond this, carrying out clean ups each month or even week!

Small Grants Scheme money

Small Grants Scheme

In 2019 we allocated £236,900 to 191 projects across Northern Ireland! From our pre-project survey results we found that:

  • 73% of people who responded got involved with the project as an opportunity to get involved with the community
  • 100% of people either agree or strongly agree that there is a need for more community involvement in environmental/community projects in their area
  • 95% of people expect that their physical and/or mental well-being will be improved through participation in the project.
