Impact measures for 2019 are included as a more representative year for TCV. At multiple points throughout 2020, we suspended or limited our volunteering in line with government restrictions to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We are extremely proud of the flexibility and commitment shown by our team and volunteers to ensure we continued to support green spaces, volunteers and local communities.

Volunteering through COVID-19

I take three buses to be able to join the group I love it so much. The community spirit, the ability to get together with friends and be in nature makes it more than worth the trip.

Building Roots (accessible) Hull Park Road David's story

Having a brain tumour has left me very isolated, so joining TCV has greatly helped my mental health as I’ve made new friends. Getting outdoors has made me appreciate the wonder of nature and I feel very comfortable and happy when I’m there.

Camden Green Gym (accessible) Gartvnavel Hospital Caroline's story

Thanks to the team of excellent TCV Project Officers, I’ve also learnt so much more about the local urban environment, and the need to enhance the diversity in the green spaces around the London Borough of Camden both in public and community places.

Hull Park Road (accessible) Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park Carol's story

I’ve been with TCV for over 2 years and in that time, I have been given the opportunity to learn skills, I have been given the opportunity to teach others the skills that I now have, and the confidence to know that I am somebody.
