Description

In the recession of the early 1980s, the environment and social cohesion of many parts of the UK was under threat. The collapse of traditional industries with associated environmental degradation and conflict within communities called for a new response. Groundwork was born out of a competition for local authorities won by St Helens.
'Operation Groundwork' was described by the then Environment Secretary Michael Heseltine as 'an entrepreneurial team, which could act independently as an enabler to mobilise all the resources in the community - public, private and voluntary'. The first Groundwork Trust was so successful that areas around the country applied to duplicate the experiment.
Over the following decades, we expanded geographically and also our work became more diverse as each Trust responded to local circumstances and innovated.
