Request Information

Registered Charity No: 1061687 (England & Wales).

We’re a small charity doing big things to support the people, landscape and wildlife of the Dales.


The Yorkshire Dales has just 2.7% woodland cover, much lower than the national average of 13%. Our species-rich hay meadows are one of the UK’s most threatened habitats, and the disadvantaged groups we work with come from the 10% most economically deprived communities in the country.

Over the last 20 years we have delivered diverse and inspirational projects worth over £30 million. Our vital work has helped to plant 1.4 million trees and secured the future of over 700 hectares of wildflower hay meadows, creating fantastic habitats for our wildlife.

We’re passionate about inspiring future generations to care for this special part of the world. We are proud to have given 13,500 disadvantaged and young people the chance to learn new skills, and feel happier and healthier by connecting with nature in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales countryside.

We rely on gifts left to us in Wills to ensure that our important work can continue. Every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a lasting difference.

If you love the Dales and would like to support our work, please get in touch. Thank you.
