Groundwork in London

Groundwork London helps communities across the capital become greener, stronger and healthier.

We work with people living in London’s most vulnerable places to transform open space, re-connect people with nature, provide training & create jobs, and reduce energy use & waste.

Our Vision

Our vision is of a society of sustainable communities which are vibrant, healthy and safe; which respect the local and global environment, and where individuals and enterprise prosper.

As a fast growing city, London faces a number of complex challenges: a rapidly increasing population, rising inequality, political uncertainty and the effects of climate change.

When these are combined with continued reductions in public funding, it is often the communities most in need that are worst affected.

Our projects and programmes help build the capacity of these communities, empowering them to engage in and shape the future of their local area.

We support Londoners to find sustainable, long-term solutions to the challenges they face, resulting in a healthier, more resilient city, where everyone has the opportunity to prosper.

Groundwork London Modern Slavery Statement
With the development of a new strategy: Groundwork 2020, our ambition is to build visibility, our reputation and our resources so that we can continue to be a significant force for driving change in places and prospects in the local communities who need it most. We operate across the whole of London. In this spirit, we have published our Slavery and Human trafficking statement and set out the steps that Groundwork London is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain. Read our Modern Slavery Policy Statement.

This statement will be regularly reviewed, and in the first instance after 12 months and thereafter at a time scale to be determined and in accordance with current practice and legislation.
