TCV - Community Network

The Conservation Volunteers believes that every community in the country should have access to high quality local green spaces – safe, welcoming, and loved by their communities – homes to thriving nature and thriving people.

TCV are committed to supporting a community network of groups and organisations who share that vision.

In a year when our green spaces have become more important than ever, and during a time when the natural environment needs us to come together to care for and protect it, we are once again able to offer Community Network membership for FREE, for new and existing members.

We can only do this with the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery so thanks to their support there has never been a better time to join us.

Join the Community Network for free

As a member of our nationwide community, you will have access to TCV resources, help with health and safety guidance, safeguarding supports, obtaining insurance at a reduced rate, and volunteer recruitment and retention.

So join our Community Network today as we work together to care for and protect our vital and precious green spaces.
