Local supporter groups

Across the country thousands of our most dedicated supporters meet on a regular basis as part of a National Trust Centre or Association. Made up of Trust members and volunteer card holders, these groups promote our work within their local area and raise money for project.

Here our local groups have donated thousands of pounds in recent years to projects such as the restoration of the rose garden wall, which had collapsed after a spell of severe weather.

Shared experiences and social activities

These groups also offer their members the chance to share unique experiences and find out more about our places with like-minded people. Activities typically range from expert talks and attending behind-the-scenes tours to exploring Trust places further afield on day coach trips or a relaxing holiday.

We’d like to say a big thank you to our local groups for their continued support, and we would also encourage you to take a look at the groups near you. Groups welcome new members and would be delighted to share their diary plans with you.

Thank you

Thank you to all our volunteers who give their time to support the National Trust in many different roles.
