How to contact our team nationally and around the country
When jumping though the hoops to win that public sector
contract, it’s great to have that edge on the competition. Often, a
bit of local knowledge and genuine innovation in providing public
benefit can swing the deal. Groundwork can work with your bid team
to identify the key social, economic and environmental outcomes –
and then develop solutions.
We can add the punch to public sector bids, act as your
interface with the local community and ensure your investment
changes lives. Partnership building and local regeneration isn’t
just a desk job for us – we’re part of that world and often have
the inside knowledge on the political context, the key players and
the buttons to push.
We will do the detective work to see how your proposal can link
with the local regeneration and sustainability scene. We can spot
and make those crucial connections that will touch the hearts and
minds of the key decision makers.
