Groundwork is a federation of charities mobilising practical community action on poverty and the environment across the UK. Groundwork was established in 1981 as a radical experiment to bring together 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.
