Groundwork is a federation of more than 40 local Trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, each working with their partners to improve the quality of the local environment, the lives of local people and the profitability of local businesses.
Groundwork works closely with the Government and national assemblies, local authorities, regional development agencies and businesses.
Groundwork's purpose is "to build sustainable communities through joint environmental action".
We believe a 'sustainable community' is one which is vibrant, healthy and safe, which respects the local and global environment and where individuals and enterprise prosper.
Every year Groundwork Trusts deliver thousands of projects in neighbourhoods which are blighted by high unemployment and crime levels, poor public health, run-down housing and public spaces, waste ground and struggling businesses. These projects deliver measurable improvements for:
Groundwork builds effective partnerships to deliver regeneration and promote sustainable development in the communities that need it most.
