Local Authorities

Some of our most important work is delivered hand-in-hand with public bodies and agencies, delivering specialist services and projects that make a real difference to communities at a local level.
Our work supports the aims and objectives of our local authority partners and is often delivered in priority and target areas. We have over 30 years’ experience working alongside the public sector, and are actively involved in many local and strategic partnerships.

We recognise the reality of tightening budgets across the public sector. That is why a defining feature of our partnership approach is to magnify the value of funding from our partners by leveraging funding from our contacts across a diverse range of sectors. This allows us to deliver  innovative projects while adding maximum value and achieving  the most impact possible in the communities that need it most.

We operate at all levels, from working with parish and town councils to raise funds for neighbourhood projects through to major master-planning initiatives with large local authorities. We are also experienced at working alongside contracted service providers, adding social value and sustainability expertise.

Our Services

We can provide bespoke services to Local Authorities across our specialist areas.

Green Spaces
Our dedicated team of architects can lead the regeneration of parks and public spaces in close cooperation and consultation with communities. We can take control of the whole delivery process from meaningful community consultation and engagement through design, delivery and maintenance of first-class green space projects.

Green Teams
Our Green Teams transform and maintain parks and green spaces while providing skills training and apprenticeships to young people who are furthest from the labour market.

Green Doctor
Our Green Doctors visit homes to provide advice and equipment to help residents and communities to cut their energy and water use, reduce emissions and save on household bills.

Youth Services
We can deliver specific youth vocational training schemes and have experience running youth centres to help young people develop skills and qualifications and the spaces to follow their interests.

Groundwork in Action

In recent years we have worked with councils across the breadth of the South of England. In the last year we have worked with Reading Borough Council to deliver mecahnic and motor education to young people through our SKIDZ programme, with  Dartford Council to provide specialist IT skills training from our SPARK IT centre to help residents find employment. We are also working in partnership with Chiswick Council to deliver a new vision for Turnham Green village green through close cooperation with local community groups and businesses.
