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.
The Groundwork Greater Nottingham Trust
People lie at the heart of what we do. Through consultation and partnership engagement we identify with the community its "wants" and "needs" and bring together in partnership in order to deliver activity which is locally appropriate, responsive and as far as is practical, sustainable.
We work towards a vision of a society of sustainable communities which are vibrant, healthy and safe, which respect the local and global enviroment and where individuals and enterprise prosper.
Creating those sustainable communities means developing initiatives which cut across economics, social issues and the environment. Our work is diverse, but all of it helps to achieve our vision.
