Working with Groundwork can bring significant added value to a landscape project.
As a charity we are often able to secure additional capital for our landscape projects, from sources including charitable trusts, landfill tax operators and our corporate partners. Our in-house fundraising team can work closely with clients and landowners to identify and apply for match funding during the early consultation phase. We also offer fundraising support to community stakeholders, supporting them to apply for a host of community grants.
We can also build in additional social and local economic value to a landscape project through our horticulture and grounds maintenance trainees, known as Green Teams.
Our Green Teams often work alongside contractors on site and on maintenance programmes. The schemes enable long term unemployed people from the local area to get skilled-up, gain new qualifications and progress into permanent work.
