Groundwork Wales - Changing Places, Changing Lives



Welcome to Groundwork Wales


Groundwork is a federation of 47 charitable Trusts working in many of the most disadvantaged areas in the country to bring together people, places and resources from all parts of the community in effective long-term partnerships. The purpose is to achieve sustainable communities through joint environmental action.
Groundwork Wales is a part of the Groundworknetwork, working with local communitiesinareas of need.

We have been active in Wales for more than ten years, weaving together environmental, social and economic programmes in a holistic approach to regeneration.

There are four Trusts in Wales, in Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taff, Bridgend, Caerphilly and Wrexham. All have been in operation for over 12 years and have a substantial track record of excellent projects on the ground. Between them they employ over 100 staff and last year turned over some 8.4 million. Last year Groundwork Wales assisted the Wrexham and Bridgend Trusts to complete their extensions into Flintshire and Neath Port Talbot respectively and the overall turnover is now budgeted to be approximately 9 million.
