About the Company:

The Groundwork movement was established more than three decades ago as a one-off experiment to galvanise communities, businesses and government in a joint effort to improve the quality of life and promote sustainable development in places that had become run down and neglected.

It has since grown into a national network and international movement of independent Groundwork Trusts which collectively make up one the UK's largest charities and social enterprises.

Groundwork BBOR has been working for over 30 years supporting people in Bolton, Bury, Oldham and Rochdale to find practical solutions to the challenges they face.

We are based at the Environment Centre on Shaw Road in Oldham, and deliver a huge range of sustainable and innovative projects throughout the four boroughs and beyond.

* Provide wider support to the young people to build their life skills and readiness for employment and training.
