About the National Trust in 2020 

In 2020 we're celebrating our 125th anniversary. We’re carrying on the ambition set out by our founders to care for nature, beauty and history. Here’s a reminder of what we’re here for and how the values of our founders are still at the heart of everything we do.

The people behind our places 

Our roles are as diverse as the people we employ, and we work together so everyone can enjoy the places our country has to offer.

The benefits of working with us

We work with a select range of corporate partners that help us ensure our nation’s special places are cared for and protected. All our partnerships help us play our part in supporting an environment under pressure for the benefit of everybody.
