All around the UK, more people than ever before are getting together in community groups to improve their local environments.
Join them now to take advantage of a dedicated support website, competitively-priced insurance, discounts from TCV’s suppliers of tools, trees, seeds and equipment, funding information, access to grants and much, much more!
We offer all you need to make your work safe, effective and enjoyable.
Whether you’re experts or just thinking about getting involved in environmental activities and need to know where to start, we can give you a helping hand to turn your vision into reality.
Join the Community Network for free in 2020
We are thrilled that, once again with thanks to the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, The Conservation Volunteers is able to offer Community Network membership free of charge to both existing and new members for 2020.
This will enable us to expand our network and support over 1,250 community groups to create and care for green spaces.
Throughout 2020, we will work to improve the level of communication between members and TCV projects offering more practical support and access to training events. We will also be upgrading our database – and we ask that all new and existing groups complete an online subscription form (one for new members and one for existing members) so we can find out more about the groups who are part of the Community Network and offer tailored assistance in the future.
Look out for more information about this in 2020.
Membership of the Network is open to all community groups, clubs, schools or local organisation wanting to work for a better environment.
Your annual free membership entitles you to the following:
- Discounted public liability and personal accident insurance, which is essential for groups carrying out practical tasks
- Exclusive access to TCV’s Community Network website; created to provide our Community Network Members with the support they need in one, easy to access, place.
- A range of specially negotiated discounts from TCV’s suppliers of tools, trees, seeds and equipment.
- Funding Support – TCV can help groups find funding with information from Grantfinder or through the Chestnut Fund
- Discounted access to our online conservation handbooks – the definitive guides to managing the countryside and green spaces.
- Support and guidance covering a range of topics – from Health and Safety to planting a wildflower meadow.
- Optional free listing of your contact details and web address on The Conservation Volunteers website
- The Community Hub, which allows you to keep a membership database, record details of your work and the sites you improve, email your members, and create reports to celebrate achievements.
