Let's tackle loneliness together this winter
Throughout this winter and into the new year we are appealing to our donors to help us tackle loneliness and bring more people and communities closer together.
Every day we see how our work helps tackle loneliness head-on, connecting people using the natural environment. From local parks and community gardens to Nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest; from school and hospital grounds to waterways, wetlands and woodlands; we connect people to the green spaces that form a vital part of any healthy, happy community.
We want to help even more people to engage in activities in their local green spaces and we know that this time of year can be particularly difficult for many people. Age UK estimate that 873,000 people aged 65 and over don’t see or hear from anyone over the festive period.*
Volunteering with TCV uses the universal appeal of nature to tackle loneliness and bring people and communities closer together.
Please make a donation and help us to reach out across the Country this winter. Thank you.

During 2017, we’ve been busy helping people to engage in activities in their local green spaces, especially when they are feeling lonely or isolated. We’ve helped 127,000 people to transform 1,500 green spaces, through 15,000 different projects, from planting trees and wild flower meadows, to building stiles, clearing footpaths or creating new food growing projects.
Our varied projects are often ideas from our volunteers and TCV helps them to achieve their ambitions to benefit their community. We are very proud of how effectively our work transforms local green spaces and in doing so brings people and communities closer together.
Thank you very much for thinking about making a donation to support our work connecting people to nature. Every penny really does help!
