Groundwork West Midlands

As a charity, Groundwork West Midlands works alongside local communities, public bodies, private companies and other voluntary sector organisations to support local communities.

We have over twenty years’ experience of delivering bespoke projects that use the environment as a catalyst for building a more sustainable future. Every year we deliver hundreds of projects across the West Midlands, helping improve the quality of people’s lives, their prospects and potential and the places where they live, work and play.

We work towards a vision – 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. Creating those sustainable communities means developing initiatives, which cut across economics, social issues and the environment. Our work is divese, but all of it helps to achieve our vision. We create real change. That means carrying out work locally, regionally and nationally that:

  • Builds people’s skills and improves job prospects
  • Redesigns our neglected open spaces for twenty-first century use
  • Helps people make their own decisions about their area
  • Motivates and develops our young people

Groundwork West Midlands are delivering two projects within the wider SUNRISE programme. One focused on the retrofitting of sustainable urban drainage features on public spaces; and the other on improving wetland habitats on Silverdale Country Park.
