Creating a community project

Securing your grant is only the first step, Groundwork's Community Project Toolkit will guide you through making your project a reality

For projects that make physical improvements

If you are planning to create a project that results in a physical change to the local environment our step-by-step guide will help you to make it a success.

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 - the Community Project Toolkit is here to help you turn your plans into reality.

For other types of community project

Although this toolkit is primarily designed for creating projects that physically transfrom a space, it also contains information about setting up a formally constituted group, getting buy in from your local community and financial management advice that should be useful for most community projects.
