Geographical remit: 


Groundwork South Tyneside & Newcastle helps people and organisations make changes in order to create better neighbourhoods, to build skills and job prospects and to live and work in a greener way.

We know that the important issues are all connected – so our work can’t easily be placed in boxes marked 'environmental issues’, 'regeneration', 'employment' or 'health'. We create projects and services that benefit both people and the wider environment.

We operate across South Tyneside and Newcastle and work on dozens of individual projects each year. We focus our activity on disadvantaged communities where we can make the most difference.


We work alongside other organisations – ranging from the smallest community group to multinational businesses.

We're all about helping others create change through working together and solving problems.

We work to create real change. That means carrying out work locally and regionally involving :

  • Youth, Employment & Skills
  • Green and Healthy Places
  • Properties & Assets
  • Communities
  • Commercial Services
