Reducing Environmental Incivility


Neighbourhood Improvement Volunteers

Did you know that we’ve run a Neighbourhood Improvement Volunteer (NIV) programme since 2008?

The NIV programme encourages individuals to improve their local environment, making it cleaner and safer for everyone in their community.

NIVs take part in a range of activities to enhance their local environment, from litter picking to reporting environmental problems. They receive support from our Neighbourhood Improvement and Enforcement Service (NIES), who supply tools, liaise with other services and participate in clean-ups.

Our NIVs tell us that being able to improve their area by personal action is very satisfying and that they like having the opportunity to make their community a better place to live.

Interested in learning more about Neighbourhood Improvement Volunteers or becoming one yourself? Give us a call 0141 276 7400 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

You can also read more from one of our NIVs, Peter, winner of a Keep Scotland Beautiful Clean Up Scotland Hero of the Month Award in 2014.
