About Groundwork Northern Ireland

Groundwork NI is a community development and regeneration charity delivering services across Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland.

Our vision is to see;

Empowered communities grown from the ground up, that are sustainable, happy and healthy places to live work and play.

We deliver improved quality-of-life outcomes for people and communities, and we have a track record of over 30 years of working with a range of partners to achieve this.

These include other community and voluntary organisations, partners in the statutory sector, cross-border and local government departments, schools and businesses.

Through our partnerships, people, volunteers and communities, Groundwork NI want to grow, create green spaces, contribute positive change and support communities. Our programmes to achieve these outcomes can be grouped into three main areas:

Covid has hugely increased people’s appreciation and interest in the outdoors and we hope to leverage that enthusiasm.
