A BUSINESS ON A MISSION

We believe in the power of social enterprise as a strategy for change.

Through our social enterprise model, we deliver professional services in a competitive marketplace.  

But there’s one key difference between Newground and our private sector competitors. 

Instead of our profits going to shareholders, they are instead gift aided into our charity and distributed in the form of grants to environmental and community projects.

By  choosing Newground, our customers are helping to drive positive social and environmental impact.

HARNESS THE POWER OF A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE TODAY AND CONTRIBUTE TO 

THE SOCIAL CHANGE OF TOMORROW.
