Trustees and Grant Review Panel members live and work locally and are supported by the Trust Director and a team at Groundwork South, who draw on their local knowledge and experience to help you submit a strong bid showing the full value of your work. To inform our funding priorities we carry out an annual survey of community groups in the region.
