Green Tracks

Green Tracks is an emerging social firm operating in the environment and conservation fields. Our philosophy of "helping people and the environment towards recovery" highlights the type of work we are involved in.

Our aim is to provide an environmental service for local communities within Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire, as well as, provide training and supported employment opportunities for those recovering from mental ill health. We achieve this by tailoring programmes to meet the requirements of both customers and clients

Since our conception in 1998 as the Alford Centre Green Group, demand for our services has grown dramatically. Under guidance from our parent organisation Mental Health Aberdeen, and with support from external sponsors such as the Scottish Executive, we have developed a service which is able to sustain development and satisfy customer demand.

Over the years, Green Tracks has worked hard to develop a good reputation in the 'not for profit' market, and, prides itself by working in partnership with professional and private customers alike, to provide a positive experience for all. Have a browse through the testimonies section for some of the comments given by our customers.

We recently achieved the status of an 'emerging social firm' by successfully generating a percentage of our funding during the years 2004 - 2005. Having established this foundation this is an area we are keen to develop further.

Since our establishment in 1998 we have developed numerous contacts. This enables us to work in partnership with various health and environmentally related projects, throughout both, Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. Our work may involve developing wildlife gardens for eco-schools and local communities, path, fence and planter construction, tree planting and landscaping etc.

By supporting individuals in an atmosphere where new skills are acquired at their own pace, we are able to achieve personal goals through structured training programs. The work carried out by Green Tracks also promotes awareness, encourages environmental responsibility within local communities and provides educational opportunities.

What Green Tracks can do.

Whether you are a private customer or business, we can help you achieve positive and lasting impressions by enhancing your environment.

Research has shown that improvements in these areas heighten productivity and morale within the workforce, and individuals. In this day and age high levels of stress are often the main cause of absence within the workplace.

On a personal basis the introduction of wildlife areas can stimulate general health and well-being. We pride ourselves by working to your specific needs, whether you require a path laid, items constructed, a low maintenance garden or larger wildlife habitat.
