British Trust for Conservation Volunteers (BTCV)
Throughout the UK, people are getting together to make a difference in their community. The Conservation Volunteers’ Community Network already supports several thousand local groups. Why not join them? We offer all you need to make your work safe, effective and enjoyable. The everyday green places that people use are especially vulnerable. 10,000 playing fields were sold off between 1979 and 1997. And only 10% of the UK’s allotments remain. Places like these do not have special protection. They are all under threat at a time when local councils are cutting budgets.
