Groundwork Five Counties works across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, and Rutland.

It was formerly known as Groundwork Greater Nottingham but we have taken on more areas, so we may help more people and communities.

Building on our success over the past 30 years, we empower local people to flourish, enjoy and care for the places around them.

  • We will help people improve their lives and their communities by providing sustainable solutions.
  • We will support people to protect and improve their local green spaces so that all lives flourish.
  • We will develop a pathway of opportunities to help people into green jobs and volunteering.
  • By improving energy efficiency, we support wellbeing and save people money.

In all kinds of ways, through our unique green offer Groundwork Five Counties empowers local communities to live more sustainable lives by being better guardians of our planet.

Groundwork Five Counties is part of the Groundwork Federation.
