The Groundwork model was initially developed by Groundwork UK. Groundwork UK continues to operate across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, working on thousands of individual projects each year. They focus their activity on disadvantaged communities where they feel they can make the most difference.  Groundwork Japan, also a partner, was founded in 1992.
