Groundwork is a federation of charities mobilising practical community action on poverty and the environment across the UK.

We’re passionate about creating a future where every neighbourhood is vibrant and green, every community is strong and able to shape its own destiny and no-one is held back by their background or circumstances.

There are two Groundwork Tusts in the East Midlands: Groundwork Five Counties and Groundwork Northamptonshire.

Groundwork UK also delivers national programmes, partnerships and grants across the region.
