It is an honour and tribute to the families, children and young people who have shown such dedication and commitment to making their community a better place over the 22 years our project has been running. We are immensely proud of what we have been able achieve in this time but not forgetting that none of this would have been possible without vital funds and the support of many organisations like Groundwork.
