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.

"I was impressed at the outstanding level of knowledge and professionalism demonstrated by the Newground Consultant. We managed to produce a legislative register, check compliance and produce an aspects register all within two days. I am also going to engage Newground’s service for a health and safety legislative compliance check and to conduct annual audits of our environmental and health and safety standards. I am one very happy customer, thank you."
