Adopt a spot in 2015

15 January 2015

The Adopt a Spot programme is a scheme that will formally enable volunteer groups across Northern Ireland to adopt an area and look after it.

Is there an area in your community that could do with a clean up? Are you fed up of unsightly graffiti, litter and dog mess on your doorstep? With 96% of Northern Ireland’s streets having been found to have litter, why not join forces with Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and Adopt a Spot!

The Adopt a Spot programme is a scheme that will formally enable volunteer groups across Northern Ireland to adopt an area and look after it. You can choose any area you like. It could be a mile of beach that always seems to be full of litter, an area covered in graffiti, an urban park or your local forest or the street you live on….anywhere is possible! If you think there is an area that could do with a bit of TLC, why not adopt it.

Adopters can be anyone, from families, community or youth groups, schools, businesses and sporting associations. Volunteering is a great way to get out and about and give you a feel good factor while simultaneously making a difference in your community. With the help of Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful you will hold 4 clean ups a year at a time of your choose. Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful will provide the successful groups with an adoption pack containing all the equipment you need such as litter pickers, bin bags, gloves, high viz vests and a hints and tips booklet on how to run a successful clean up.

Closing date is 19th February.
