The Conservation Volunteers have launched a new appeal directed at the people across the UK who generously support us by asking “How Are You?”
Staying socially connected is more important now than ever, that is why we have taken this opportunity not to ask our supporters to do something for us, but to ask what we can do for them.
The appeal is an extension to the work that we have been carrying out during this period of lockdown by providing our supporters with nature based activities to keep connected to nature at this time, and directing those who need help adjusting to the measures to the right places.
During this time of physical distancing and lockdown, we have significantly reduced our activity to maintain a minimal physical presence in our local green spaces to deliver essential duties, but we very much continue to be here to provide our community of volunteers, supporters and our extended TCV team with ways to remain not only connected with each other, but to nature.
We have been thrilled with the positive response that we have received so far from our appeal, with donors already making calls to speak with our Marketing Manager Amy Brighton to tell us how they are coping with lockdown and what they are looking forward to once lockdown is over.
We wanted to adapt our approach to our supporters at a time of international crisis.…
The Conservation Volunteers is pleased to announce that, thanks to the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we are offering free membership to new and existing members of our Community Network in 2020.
As the UK, along with the rest of the world, faces the challenges of COVID-19, we recognise the importance of the incredible work our network of community groups during these challenging and uncertain times.
Green spaces are vital for happy and healthy communities and have become a crucial part of daily life for many of us during lockdown.
COVID-19 is having a huge impact on volunteering and green spaces across the country, and we want to be able to extend our support to all our Community Network groups so that they can focus on safely protecting and caring for their local green spaces.
The Friends of Kelly Avenue Park are very grateful for our FREE membership which has once again been supported by the players People’s Postcode Lottery for 2020.While…
Earlier this month, we shared what TCV staff and volunteers have been doing during this lockdown period to keep their communities connected.
Connecting people and green spaces has always been at the heart of the work we do at TCV, but recently our efforts, along with everyone else’s, have been focused on how to keep communities connected and how we can do our bit to help those who need it most.
This Tuesday is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity where we can all come together to show our gratitude and appreciation for those who have supported our communities during this challenging time.
Giving Tuesday, usually taking place on the Tuesday after US Thanksgiving, has been running in the UK since 2014 and is a global giving campaign that celebrates charities and promotes the various ways people can give back.
Across the UK, there has been an outpouring of support for charities and the NHS and this is our chance to say thank you as a global community.
In 2019, our 60th anniversary year, TCV worked with 101,000 people to improve and care for 1,500 green spaces in UK communities across 12,500 projects.
During these challenging times, we are working closely with all our partners to understand the implications of the virus and the potentially damaging impact that this will have on our projects as we are face with very unpredictable as well uncertain circumstances.
We have been overwhelmed by the support for donors who continue to give generously during this outbreak, and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone.
TCV will be sharing our messages of thanks to our volunteers who have repurposed their volunteering efforts to support their communities, to our supporters who have been ever-present during this challenging time and to all the essential workers across the UK.
#GivingTuesdayNow are also asking everyone to put a heart in their front window, as a sign of gratitude to all the essential workers supporting our communities.
If there is a message of thanks that you want us to share, send it to us with a picture of a heart in your front window and we will share in across TCV social media channels.
For all those who continue to volunteer, who are making sure our green spaces to be enjoyed once again and to all the essential workers who have been on the frontline and supporting us nationwide during this time, a huge thank you from all at TCV.…
People’s Postcode Lottery are supporting The Conservation Volunteers for a third year, with £550,000 of funding, bringing their total contribution to £1,475,000 since 2018.
We received this long-term, unrestricted and flexible funding through the Postcode Green Trust and it has been invaluable in helping us to plan for the future and put the resources in place to deliver even more for people and green spaces.
At the end of each year we have produced a report to demonstrate the impact of People’s Postcode Lottery players’ support highlighting the activities we’ve been able to achieve together:

For the first time in more than 60 years, The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) have taken the decision to suspend all our volunteering activities following the Government guidelines.
Whilst we continue to maintain a minimal physical presence in our local green spaces to deliver essential duties, we are still very much here to provide our community of volunteers, supporters and our extended TCV team with ways to remain not only connected with each other, but to nature.Through…
