Groundwork works with communities to make thousands of projects a reality every year. Whether it's tackling climate change by helping people out of fuel poverty, bringing out the best in young people by helping them to improve their local area, building stronger communities by improving green space or getting people back into work by creating green jobs - they all change places and change lives for the better.
