Love Your Community - your donation can make a significant difference

A lack of investment in urban communities can mean that a once-loved open space becomes neglected, overgrown and unused. In the worst cases, they can be a magnet for vandalism, crime and anti-social behaviour.

But the good news is this - your gift today can help us to care for the people and places in our society that frequently 'fall through the cracks'. We help individuals and communities gain the confidence and skills to look after their local outdoor spaces, turning them into welcoming, vibrant, and sociable places that can be enjoyed by everyone.

By donating today you can make a real and lasting difference in communities across the UK.

Your donation will be gratefully received and carefully spent, thank you for supporting your community.

An example of how you make a difference

Donegall Pass

The Donegall Pass Community Garden is a perfect example of how your contributions to The Conservation Volunteers can help to transform local communities back into vibrant, friendly places centred around a regenerated green space for everyone to enjoy.

Working in close partnership with local volunteers, the TCV Community Action Team has transformed Donegall Pass. From a badly overgrown, neglected piece of wasteland – into a beautiful, fully accessible community garden where people can grow fruit and vegetables, children can play and people can just meet for a chat.

TCV put in place a range of activities to ensure that the whole community could enjoy this newly created oasis in their midst, connect with their neighbours and even learn a range of new skills – to ensure the garden will be enjoyed for generations to come.

With your help we can put the heart back into communities. Thank you for your support.

TCV approach to fundraising

TCV is very grateful for the support of our donors. We take a personal approach to fundraising activities and as such do not use private fundraising organisations to undertake appeals on our behalf. This includes nation-wide appeals and through our regional centres.

We do not use outbound telephone calls as part of our fundraising activity nor do we ever sell our supporters' data. We plan our fundraising activities so that they're clear, honest and respectful. We're members of the Fundraising Standards Board, which encourages high standards in fundraising through regulation so that the public can be confident when they make a donation.
