What we do: Creating better places

Groundwork MSSTT helps people to organise and work together to improve or create green spaces like parks, play areas, allotments and nature reserves – our vital green infrastructure.

We believe that green space is vital to the health and wellbeing of the local community, environment and economy. We help people create ‘friends groups’ and mobilise support and funding, and our award-winning landscape architects work with communities to create better places to play, grow, eat and meet.

We develop community gardens and spaces, play areas, school grounds, parks improvements and green infrastructure solutions, including street trees; green roofs; sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) and temporary urban food growing facilities. 

It’s most rewarding to see how this scheme has improved our area, which makes it so much more pleasant. We feel proud of where we live!
