TCV works with communities to help them take an active role in the creation of local outdoor spaces that reflect their community’s unique needs.
Their precious green spaces might be used as somewhere to grow food, as an outdoor classroom, as a haven for wildlife or simply somewhere to meet friends.
Join in TCV’s local conservation projects, or with our network of community groups, to create and develop these spaces at the heart of communities.
On my first ever day with TCV, I realised that I had stumbled across a group that was going to provide me with an ongoing and amazing experience each and every week.
Eve, TCV Volunteer
TCV has teamed up with the People’s Health Trust to deliver an exciting new scheme called the Local People Programme which is focused on supporting people to address the issues in their communities and neighbourhoods through collective action.
This programme allows TCV to work closely with local people in six places across England and Scotland, supporting them to both identify challenges in their community and develop ideas to address them.
TCV’s Community Rewilding project in Glasgow improves urban green spaces for wildlife and people, and encourages residents to engage with and learn about their local natural heritage.
We deliver practical volunteering days which give local people the opportunity to improve their patch by carrying out tasks such as tree planting, wildflower meadow creation and invasive plant removal.
As well as giving people the chance to physically improve their green spaces, we have been running a programme of public events and sessions which encourage people to get outdoors and make use of their community green spaces.
