The Groundwork movement was established more than three decades ago as a one-off experiment to galvanise communities, businesses and government in a joint effort to improve the quality of life and promote sustainable development in places that had become run-down and neglected. It has since grown into a national network and international movement of independent Groundwork Trusts which is collectively one of the UK’s largest charities and social enterprises.
