Creative Regeneration Programme


Groundwork is a regeneration charity that supports communities in need, working with partners to help improve the quality of people’s lives, their prospects and potential and the places where they live, work and play.

Their vision 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.

They work alongside communities, public bodies, private companies and other voluntary sector organisations to deliver projects and programmes that benefit: people – creating opportunities for people to learn new skills and become more active citizens places – delivering environmental improvements that create cleaner, safer, greener neighbourhoods prosperity – helping businesses and individuals fulfill their potential.

Groundwork aims to help people make sustainable development a reality by addressing concurrent environmental, social and economic issues. They operate locally, regionally and nationally in the UK and have growing international links. Their approach is always to work with others to add value to wider plans and strategies and our role is often to find ways of helping local people get practically involved in making decisions and managing improvements in their neighbourhoods.

Groundwork is supported in England by the Department for Communities and Local Government and is a partner in the Government’s campaign to create cleaner, safer, greener communities. Other major supporters include the Welsh Assembly Government, the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, development agencies, local authorities, the National Lottery, private companies and charitable trusts.
