Growing Communities in Adur and Worthing

We are on a mission to help more community groups to thrive as part of our 60th Anniversary celebrations by providing free membership for all!

Since announcing free Community Network membership for 2019, over 1000 community groups that help improve green spaces to benefit communities and wildlife have joined TCV from across the UK.

The membership offers discounted insurance, practical and operational advice, guidance and support to any community group that is committed to protecting their local environment and precious green spaces. TCV is able to offer membership free in its Anniversary year due to valuable support from players of People's Postcode Lottery.

Since 1959, TCV has brought people together to create, improve and care for green spaces. From local parks and community gardens to nature reserves, school and hospital grounds, to waterways, wetlands and woodlands; TCV has connected people to the green spaces that form a vital part of any healthy, happy community.

All community groups are welcome to join the charities membership - all we ask are that you are dedicated to improving and protecting your local environment.

Thank you so much to players of People’s Postcode Lottery because I know that your support has made a huge difference in helping our groups ”. 

TCV Community Network member, Kamil Pachalko, Southend in Transition said, “The membership of the network gave us access to handbooks, grants and the insurance which made setting up our project much easier. We didn't want the hassle of reinventing the wheel :) The free membership this year means we can invest more in our local community and activities. Thank you.”
