Mission, Vision and Values


Groundwork Greater Nottingham is a multi-disciplinary organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people living in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (or D2N2).


Our work is divided into four main areas: Environment, Employability, Community Development and Children + Young People.  Here at Groundwork Greater Nottingham, we:


  • Understand the vital importance of partnership working and involving local people in all elements of service delivery to ensure we can help fulfil both their needs and desires
  • Work closely with other professional organisations, local groups and individuals of all ages, as well as funders and partners from across the sector to ensure we develop and deliver projects which are truly beneficial to the people of D2N2
  • Support young people to make positive well informed life choices and to ensure that local young people have a voice which is heard


And we work hard in order to help those in the D2N2, by:


  • Conserving, protecting and improving the physical and natural environment
  • Providing facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure time occupation to improve the conditions of life
  • Advancing public education in environmental matters and of the ways of better conserving, protecting and improving the environment
  • Promoting urban and rural regeneration in areas of social and economic deprivation


We endeavour to work towards our vision working in the right way which, for us, means upholding our company values:
