How to get in touch with our team
Groundwork helps people become active
citizens and improve the places they live.
We inspire communities to become involved in their local area by
giving them a voice and supporting them to turn their ideas into
real changes - from regenerating a neglected green space to
tackling anti-social behaviour.
We develop projects that bring together people from different
backgrounds and age groups, helping nurture a sense of community.
We help people to adopt healthier lifestyles by becoming more
active or growing their own food.
We help people gain new skills and experience to help them into
training and employment. We can also signpost people towards groups
or other support services in their neighbourhoods.
