BTCV was established in 1959 and formerly known as the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers.  Over 50 years later, we are now at work right across the UK, as well as internationally.

BTCV is a volunteering organisation, helping people to improve and conserve the environment through practical action, building a sense of community for everyone who lives there.

Our Vision of "A better environment" means many things to many people. 

For some, it means halting the loss of biodiversity.  For others, it means improving a local park - making a safe and pleasant place for recreation.  For many, it means tackling the challenge of climate change.

By supporting BTCV you enable us to engage, educate and inspire local people and communities to care for and about their environment, making a real and tangible difference both locally and globally.
