Beyond the numbers

The report also showcases the amazing communities, individuals and organisations that we help every day including young people, Jordan and Megan who have overcome adversity and personal issues to get on track to a positive future, thanks to support from Groundwork projects. Keen horticulturist, Sue, 69, and Men in Shed’s volunteer, Keith, 79 have also shown that age is just a number after they both been involved in local projects run by Groundwork.
