Save outdoor spaces - vote Groundwork

Will your children still be able to enjoy nature if you don’t vote?


The likelihood of children visiting any green space at all has halved in a generation.

Together, we can change this and save our spaces. The Co-operative is asking their staff and members to vote between 22 June and 12 July on a cause to support over the next two years.

We are championing green spaces across the UK so our children can continue to access nature. If we win, we will fundraise and campaign with the Co-operative to support hundreds of projects across the UK, preserving these precious community spaces and mobilising thousands of people to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.

Ex England and Chelsea footballer, Graeme Le Saux, said:

"Giving children access to outdoor spaces and facilities is absolutely vital for their physical and emotional wellbeing.  Vote for us and give our communities the spaces that they need."

Your vote could help to save outdoor spaces and change lives in your neighbourhood.
