Changing places, changing lives - one green step at a time

Big global issues – the economy, the environment – have a big local impact. We work across the UK helping communities find practical solutions to the challenges they face.


We provide training and create jobs, reduce energy and waste, re-connect people with nature and transform whole neighbourhoods. Step by step we’ll go on changing places and changing lives until everywhere is vibrant and green, every community is strong enough to shape its own destiny and everyone can reach their potential.

Welcome to Groundwork North Yorkshire

Groundwork North Yorkshire supports communities in need, working from bases in Selby and Scarborough and with partners throughout the area to make positive changes. Our vision is to create better neighbourhoods, build skills and job prospects and to live and work in a greener way.
