Groundwork Derby and Derbyshire

Groundwork Derby and Derbyshire is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. We are part of a federation of charitable trusts each working with their partners to improve the quality of the local environment, the lives of local people and the profitability of local businesses.

We were founded in 1988 to cover Erewash and in 1996 we expanded to cover Amber Valley. We became Groundwork Derby and Derbyshire in October 2006 and now cover most of Derbyshire including Derby City.

We are a not for profit organisation with a board of directors selected from local private, public and voluntary services.

We operate from the Bridge Centre in Langley Mill, which is a community-based local resource centre and now serves as our main office. We also have offices in Ripley Town Hall and in the Market Place in Somercotes.

Our purpose is "to build sustainable communities through joint environmental action". We achieve this by encouraging local people, local businesses and other organisations to become involved in practical projects that improve their quality of life, bring about regeneration and lay the foundations for sustainable development.

We deliver projects under the following three broad categories: Social, Economic and Environmental.


  • Improving Health and Wellbeing
  • Developing public open spaces
  • Building safer communities
  • Contributing to Citizenship


  • Assisting with local employment
  • Providing environmental services to Businesses
  • Delivering skills training and workforce development
  • Facilitating new social enterprise


  • Managing and improving biodiversity
  • Managing and improving the natural and built environment
  • Waste management
  • Tackling climate change, including energy saving and renewable energy generation
  • Promoting and facilitating the provision of sustainable food and other natural resources
