About Groundwork South Yorkshire 

In 2015 Groundwork Sheffield and Groundwork Dearne Valley joined up to serve the whole South Yorkshire region. From our two offices based in Sheffield and Barnsley, our projects seek to help all sections of the community find practical solutions to the challenges they face, whether this is participating in training and education, securing employment, creating a sustainable business enterprise or developing their local environment.  

Groundwork South Yorkshire is part of Groundwork UK, a federation of independent trusts operating across England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
