At Kenny Waste Management, we understand that some people who face personal challenges are determined to make positive choices and change their own lives. We want to enable people to do this. That’s why we set up our own Social Enterprise, Driving Change, which aims to empower organisations to offer long-term jobs, training, and qualifications to the most disadvantaged.
We’ve been part of the Salford community for over 35 years, so we are delighted to announce our new partnership with Salford Foundation.
For more than three decades, Salford Foundation have been providing fantastic opportunities that help people realise their full potential. Their inclusive range of projects routinely change the lives of young people and adults by empowering them to succeed. We’re excited to take on board their insights on key social issues affecting our local community, which will transform our perspective.
Led by our passion to make Driving Change really impactful, we’ll be collaborating with Salford Foundation’s project, The Shed, to provide employment referrals and exciting new training opportunities.
We want to ensure that our partnership produces long-lasting change, so the Salford Foundation team will be working with us closely to refine our policies to reflect best practice. They’ll also be providing us with training on the key social issues.
We’re committed to investing in our people and our community. By making sure what we do works right now and in the long-term, Salford Foundation will help Driving Change make another vital connection between us and our community, deepening our understanding on how what we do makes a real difference.
Our Responsible Business Manager, Alex Mayes, said:
“We’re thrilled to be working with Salford Foundation enabling individuals to fulfil their true potential. The pandemic has impacted a significant number of people and now is the time to help those who face challenges switch careers, access training, or get back into employment. Over the next twelve months, our partnership will create new pathways to work, and our team will help deliver employability workshops and volunteer their time to have a real impact in our community.”
Phil East, CEO of Salford Foundation, said:
“We’re delighted to be working with Kenny Waste Management in this exciting new partnership. In our work helping people to build better futures, the role of local employers is crucial in providing work-related experiences, role models and pathways into paid employment. Kenny Waste Management is a leading example in its aspiration and drive to help local people realise their potential, particularly those who face additional challenges in their journey towards paid work. We look forward to working closely together, for the benefit of the people of Salford.”
We’re eager to begin our work with Salford Foundation. We will continue to keep our internal and external stakeholders updated, with further news expected by March 2022.
