The people behind the film
From Dan in Peterborough turning his life around through our Green Team programme, to Maeve in Belfast helping to break down barriers between communities, our Community Spirit film features real people and projects. Watch the films below to hear their stories:
Many parts of Belfast are still deeply divided along Republican and Unionist lines. Groundwork and its partners are running projects to bring people like Maeve together with her neighbours from different communities.
Bullied at school, Dan left education without qualifications. He has lived with anxiety and depression and has found it hard to find work. Groundwork's Green Team scheme has helped him to find a career.
A lifelong passion for the environment inspired Tamanna to join Groundwork Youth and create an event by young people, for young people to encourage more people to take action.
After years of living with severe depression, Tom Cunningham is finally starting to feel better about himself and life in general. He puts it all down to volunteering at a local community garden.
