We're thrilled to announce that Nurture Group has been awarded the prestigious Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award 2023. This esteemed accolade recognises employers who have demonstrated exceptional support to the armed forces community and defence by surpassing their Armed Forces Covenant pledges.
As a company committed to social responsibility and making a positive impact, we are proud to support our Armed Forces Community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. The Covenant represents a promise from the nation to those who serve or have served, as well as their families, ensuring they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives. It is a collective responsibility involving government, businesses, local authorities, charities, and the public. To truly make a difference, active support from the people, communities, and businesses of the UK is vital.
Our dedication to the Armed Forces extends beyond words. Through our grounds maintenance services, Nurture Group has worked extensively with various government departments and Ministry of Defence (MOD) facilities across significant multi-site portfolios throughout the UK. Since 2008, we have partnered with Aspire Defence Services Limited (ADSL) to provide comprehensive grounds maintenance services at Aldershot and the Salisbury Plains Garrisons. Our work encompasses the external maintenance of communal garrison areas, residential and officers' mess areas, and soldiers' living accommodation.
Moreover, we take pride in maintaining natural sports turf surfaces to the highest FA and RFU standards, including 3G sports pitches, ECB county-standard cricket wickets, and athletics stadia. We are also responsible for the meticulous upkeep of cemeteries in accordance with the stringent standards set by the War Graves Commission. In recognition of our expertise and dedication, we were honoured to receive the IOG Industry Award for Public Sector Sports Ground Team in 2018.
Nurture Group collaborates with numerous government departments and facilities management companies to maintain a diverse range of office spaces, government buildings, and associated grounds across the UK. Our comprehensive grounds maintenance services ensure that these sites not only meet but exceed the highest standards, providing safe, welcoming, and visually appealing environments for staff, visitors, and the wider community.
Receiving the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award 2023 is a testament to our unwavering commitment to the armed forces community and defence. We are honoured to be acknowledged for going above and beyond our Armed Forces Covenant pledges, and we will continue to support our military personnel and their families in every way we can.
At Nurture Group, we believe in making a positive difference through our work, and we are dedicated to upholding the values of the Armed Forces Covenant. We extend our sincere gratitude to our employees and partners for their continued support in achieving this prestigious recognition.
