How to contact our team nationally and around the country
Our youth workers want young people to be part of
things, to have stuff to do and use their boundless energy to
educate those older and younger than themselves in issues affecting
Groundwork gets young people doing interesting things that put
them in direct contact with their neighbours, with local shops and
businesses and sometimes the local council to make positive changes
to where they live. Britain’s young people have certainly got
talent – many of them make podcasts, songs or films about their
neighbourhoods or take part in community clean ups. Some are so
proactive that local businesses or colleges join with them to give
them genuine work experience or to offer practical advice on how to
be entrepreneurial. And those of our team who work with young
people in schools find the appetite amongst youngsters for
educating their elders in greener living is voracious.
