Our natural world and places of historic beauty are at serious risk. Together, we can help nature recover, bring people closer to it, and ensure our shared history continues to inspire us all

We need your support

The National Trust was founded over 125 years ago, on the belief that all people have an essential need for nature, beauty and history. It’s what connects us all and enables us to thrive. The coronavirus crisis has thrown this need sharply into focus once more.

Throughout the Trust’s history, the generosity of people is what has made the difference, one generation after another playing their part in caring for this country’s best-loved places. Your donation today will enable us to continue to look after these precious places, for everyone, for ever - thank you.
