Groundwork Wales is part of the Groundwork federation
Groundwork Wales works alongside local communities, public bodies, private companies and other voluntary sector organisations to support communities in need.
We help people and organisations make changes in order to create better neighbourhoods, build skills and job prospects and to live and work in a greener way.
We have over twenty years experience in delivering bespoke projects that use the environment as a catalyst for building a more sustainable future. We focus our activity on communities where we can make the most difference.
