GROUNDWORK UK

Groundwork UK is the central body of the Groundwork federation, managing programmes and relationships that help create greener, stronger, healthier communities, support responsible business and improve people's prospects across the UK.

Changing places, changing lives

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