How we're helping

Child building a woodland den

Re-connecting children with nature 

When children spend time playing outdoors in nature, it helps increase their wellbeing – and that of their families. It also means they’re more likely to care for the natural environment. That’s why we’ve developed ’50 things to do before you’re 11¾’.

Help keep the coast alive 

Building sandcastles and paddling in the sea - what if all we had left of the coast were memories? As seas rise and storms rage, our shifting shores are transformed. Each coastal mile costs £3,000 a year to maintain and we need your help to keep the coast alive for everyone.
