Community Groups

At Groundwork we have over three decades of experience helping community groups create better and greener places.

Over the years we've seen the power that community projects have to create positive change in a local area.

Locally we often help establish Friends of Parks groups and work alongside community groups to help them achieve their vision. We can't guarantee to be able to help as resources are tight, but it's always worth getting in contact


Groundwork works with corporate partners and other organisations to provide funding to community groups. At present, we're helping Tesco with their Bags of Help initiative.

Bags of Help is Tesco’s local community grant scheme where the money raised from the 5p bag levy in Tesco stores is being used to fund thousands of community projects across the UK. The projects must meet the criteria of bringing benefits to the community.
