There are 47 individual Wildlife Trusts covering the whole of the UK and the Isle of Man and Alderney. Together, the Wildlife Trusts are the UK's largest people-powered environmental organisation working for nature's recovery on land and at sea.
Each Wildlife Trust is an independent charity, and is deeply-rooted within the local communities from which it was formed.
The Wildlife Trusts want to help nature recover from the decline that for decades has been the staple diet of scientific studies and news stories. They have a passionate belief that wildlife and natural processes need to have space to thrive, beyond designated nature reserves and other protected sites.
Funding from players of People's Postcode Lottery will enable the Wildlife Trusts to transform the lives of inner-city children by offering them regular access to nature through a range of activities. Funding will pay for the provision of Forest School activities, which provide fun, engaging opportunities to develop child and parent confidence and enjoyment, while spending time outside in nature.
