Our Mission

Our vision at Groundwork is of a society of sustainable communities which are vibrant, healthy and safe, which respect the local and global environment, and where individuals and enterprise prosper.

Our mission is to inspire people and deliver positive sustainable change in places of need across Yorkshire. 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 noone is held back by their background or circumstances.

We work across Yorkshire helping communities find practical sustainable solutions to the challenges they face. We provide training and create jobs, reduce energy and waste, reconnect people with nature and transform whole neighbourhoods. We are passionate about changing places and lives for the better. With over 100 staff across the region, and over 35 years’ experience, we are always keen to hear from people with the drive and determination to make a difference and have lots of ways you can get involved. Many of our staff began their careers as volunteers or entry level project staff. By providing a range of training and continuous professional development opportunities at the local, regional and national level we are able to recruit and retain the very best.

Our federation strategy commits all parts of Groundwork to prioritising equity and inclusion and our commitment statement sets out the guiding principles we use to drive inclusive practice. It outlines the responsibilities of our trustees, the responsibilities we have to our employees and how we aim to promote equity and tackle injustice through our local delivery.

We hope you’ll want to join us as we continue innovating to change places and change lives.
