We have been crunching the numbers and have come up with some impressive figures regarding our achievements over the past ten years.
Between 2003 and 2013 Groundwork:
- Delivered approximately 65,000 projects
- Planted 1.4 million trees
- Improved 164 million square metres of land
- Maintained 363 million square metres of land
- Organised 5.1 million days of volunteering and community action by adults and young people – that equates to approximately 14,000 years
- Created around 40,000 jobs
As we often say, our work is about much more than the hard statistics; it’s about the human and environmental stories behind the numbers.
However, these figures give you a good idea of how many places and how many lives we have changed over the last decade.
