About the host organisation

Hosted by: Groundwork Greater Manchester
Organisation Profile: Groundwork is a federation of charities working nationally and locally to transform lives in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities. We’re passionate about creating a future where every neighbourhood is vibrant and green, every community is strong and able to shape its own destiny and no-one is held back by their background or circumstances. We help people gain confidence and skills, get into training and work, protect and improve green spaces, lead more active lives and overcome significant challenges such as poverty, isolation, low skills and poor health. The Thriving Communities project aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness by increasing the opportunities for participation. We're looking for volunteers who are interested in supporting and helping to sustain new community-led activity and interest groups. At the moment we would particularly like to hear from anyone who is interested in supporting a new gardening project in Chadderton but if you have any other interests and would like to discuss the ways you might be able to contribute, then we would love to hear from you!
