HOW DO WE HELP?

Our work focuses on three main areas

  • ENGAGING LOCAL COMMUNITIES WITH THEIR ENVIRONMENT
    We support local voluntary organisations and initiatives, e.g. friends of parks groups, 2 Minute Litter Picks etc., which protect and enhance local green spaces
  • Energy Efficiency and Sustainability
    We work with schools, nonprofits, community centres and households to help them to save energy, money and reduce emissions. We also work on air quality & promote recycling and building community resilience
  • BIODIVERSITY – SPECIES & HABITAT PROTECTION
    We facilitate the preservation of local biodiversity, and promote the conservation and improvement of the natural environment
