Our local Groundwork Trust was established in 1983. We change places and change people's lives. We're passionate about creating a future where every community is strong and able to shape its own destiny and where everyone can reach their potential. Examples of services include:
  • Since 2009 our award winning 'Green Teams' have completed 250 jobs and employed 134 NEET young people, of whom 87% have subsequently progressed into further employment.
  • Prince's Trust Team Programme: over 3200 young people since 1998.
  • Own and maintain several important natural habitats in Rochdale
  • Award winning energy efficiency programme-last year supporting 450 resident
  • CCG funded health projects, currently focused on encouraging families to play outdoors
We operate within four boroughs ( Bolton, Bury, Oldham and Rochdale) of Greater Manchester.
We currently have 48 full-time staff, 8 part-time staff, 20 volunteers and 14 voluntary Board of Trustee members.
