Groundwork launches new Community Project Toolkit

Posted on 29 February 2016

Groundwork has launched a brand new ‘Community Project Toolkit’ website to provide a one stop shop for people who want to create and sustain successful local community projects. 

The website offers tips of the community project trade, providing both practical and inspirational advice to those who aspire to make a difference to their local area but don’t necessarily have the knowledge or confidence to go about it. 

The website includes guidance and information on how people can take ideas from the drawing board to outside world, including:

  • Choosing the right project
  • Making the project a success
  • Inspiring and maintaining community involvement
  • Handling management, legal and financial issues
  • Sustainability – environmental, economical and social

The toolkit is also broken down into further categories, providing both inspiration and project -specific advice to those wanting guidance on:

  • Food growing projects and kitchen projects
  • Projects in school grounds
  • Sports and arts projects
  • Natural spaces projects
  • Community youth projects
  • Canal and waterway projects
  • Accessibility and community projects
  • Heritage community projects
  • Outdoor gym projects
  • Play projects

With over 35-years of experience under their belt, Groundwork knows the difference that greener spaces and better places can make to communities as well as the positive benefits that come from helping to make local communities better places to live.
