About us

Groundwork is the community charity with a green heart

Groundwork is a federation of not-for-profit trusts that are changing places and 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.

We provide training and create jobs, reduce energy and waste, re-connect people with nature and transform whole neighbourhoods. Step by step we’ll go on changing places and changing lives until everywhere is vibrant and green, every community is strong enough to shape its own destiny and everyone can reach their potential.

Here at Groundwork Manchester, Salford, Stockport Tameside and Trafford (MSSTT) we work hard to deliver, inspire and improve local areas, businesses and the lives of local people, many of whom live in some of our most challenging neighbourhoods.

Our vision:

To improve the quality of life for people in neighbourhoods most in need.

“A Brilliant concept to bring so many groups together in the quest to encourage the community of Trafford in growing better fruit and veg”
