Our local environments matter – they’re vital to people, communities and to the planet. Creating and protecting spaces that mitigate against the impacts of climate change requires a combination of central and local government, businesses and communities all working closely together now.

Our approach over the past 40 years is locally driven and based on improving the sense of place, placing landscape and people at its heart. We believe that environmental resilience must be coupled with social resilience, putting people in a position to influence decisions that affect them, influence the spaces in which they live, and will respect, care for and understand for years to come.

We do this by helping people of all ages to organise and work together to protect, preserve, improve spaces and places that matter to them. We help people who are isolated or experiencing health problems to get involved and get active. We re-connect people with nature, understanding the importance of biodiversity.
