Changing places, changing lives - one green step at a time

Big global issues – the economy, the environment – have a big local impact. We work across the UK helping communities find practical solutions to the challenges they face.

Welcome to Groundwork BBOR

Welcome to Groundwork, a charity established to help our local communities. Big global issues – the economy, the environment – have a big local impact. We work across our local areas helping communities find practical solutions to the challenges they face. We provide training and create jobs, reduce energy use and waste, re-connect people with nature and transform whole neighbourhoods. We're passionate about creating a future where everywhere is vibrant and green, every community is strong and able to shape its own destiny and where everyone can reach their potential.
