How to contact our team nationally and around the country
Groundwork works with community groups to make changes to local
places across the country. Often where we work depends on funding
and our capacity, but it is always worth contacting us to see what
we can do in your area. Start by visiting the website of your
local Groundwork Trust.
We also run a number of grant schemes that your community could
