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.
We think more communities should have the chance to benefit - so we're sharing the tips, tools and tricks to make your project a success.
Whether you're planning to create - or improve - a park, playground, school grounds, community garden or other community space near you - this site is here to help you turn your plans into reality.
