Nanogreen Cleaning: A Hand Up

After a challenging childhood, growing up in Glasgow, at just 16 Craig Duff decided to leave and ended up in Devizes! Craig counts himself very fortunate to have been taken under the wing of a local businessman who gave him an opportunity to learn a trade and get himself grounded.

Having now built up an ecologically friendly cleaning business; Nanogreen, Craig has decided to help others in need. Working with the two local homeless charities: Threshold and the Salvation Army (Booth House) in Swindon. He offers work experience with the possibility of employment to those who, due to their own special circumstances, find it very challenging to even get a first job interview.

Watch the film “Mikey” to see how this private business is changing the lives of local people who simply need a helping hand up to realise their potential.

What could you do? Increasingly so: Commercial organisations delivering social or environmental impact are finding that it gives them a marketing edge when prospective clients choose who to buy from.
