Creating Better Places NE & Cumbria

Centenary Gardens

The environment where we grow up, live and work matters. From the start Groundwork has been passionate about making better, greener places. This is because the shared spaces in our neighbourhoods – our parks, playgrounds, allotments and other green spaces, bring plenty of benefits. They offer the chance to bring people together; give us pride in where we live ; reconnect us with nature; improve health and wellbeing; cut crime and help us live greener lifestyles.

The Groundwork approach is to help local people to create practical community led projects then bring together partners from the public sector, businesses and charities to make them happen. The result is better, greener, safer places where people of all ages and backgrounds work together to shape their own future.
