Local authorities are key partners for Groundwork. We
work closely with Wakefield Council and the Local Strategic
Partnership, Wakefield Together.
We have a shared understanding of the local area and local
priorities, which gives us a head start in creating initiatives
which will really work on the ground.
We can work with you to develop bespoke projects that deliver
for local people and for your targets. Our projects range
from relatively straightforward contract work, to entrepreneurial,
experimental, risk taking projects that are innovative and
creative and solve problems.
In the areas in which we work, helping to meet Local Area
Agreement (LAA) targets is one of the main drivers of our activity.
We want to add value to the work of the local authority and other
partners and make a real impact on the ground.

just about making the area look nice, it is about really building
