Social Action Programme

Our Social Action Programme is an exciting initiative aimed at empowering communities in coming together to make a positive impact on the world and the places around them.  This effective and invaluable programme is designed to encourage collaboration and co-operation. It gives individuals the opportunity to join forces with like-minded people and achieve more than they could on their own.

Groundwork Five Counties’ Social Action Programme can be integrated with any of our other products.
