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 NEWY

Here at Groundwork NEWY we work towards a vision of a society of sustainable communities which are vibrant, healthy and safe. We want individuals and enterprise to prosper by helping people with training and the knowledge to build a strong future for themselves. We deliver bespoke projects that use the environment as a catalyst for building a more sustainable future to be enjoyed for generations. 

We develop diverse initiatives which cut across economics, social issues and the environment all of which help us to achieve our vision.
