At Groundwork, we put the voice and interests of young people at the centre of all our youth work. This means promoting youth participation and social action, delivering youth work, and ensuring that all our plans and programmes empower future generations.

Our goal is to help all young people to play a full and active role in their communities. We do this by ensuring that their voices are listened to, ensuring they have choice about their lives and their environment, and empowering them to play a part in the decisions that affect their lives and communities.

We are committed to safeguarding young people through our programmes and also by taking practical action on poverty and climate change. The Hear By Right accreditation recognises our dedication to youth participation and promoting youth voice.

Through our projects below, our services include:

  • 1:1 support
  • Youth Clubs
  • Targeted Youth Projects
