About us:

Established in 1991, Groundwork Northern Ireland is a charity that is 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.

We help people gain skills, get into training and work; we work with communities to protect and improve green spaces; lead more active lives and overcome significant challenges such as poverty, isolation, low skills and poor health.

We have distributed over £6 million in grants to community projects; provided nearly 100 beacons for community celebrations; supported 65 Men’s Sheds across NI and transformed 4 spaces into Meanwhile Gardens.
