Trusts and Foundations

The support of trusts and foundations, large and small, is vital to our work. With the help of your trust we can:

save buildings, give them new life and continue to look after them.

protect important landscapes.

care for the natural environment and unique, native species of Lundy, a small island in the Bristol Channel.

preserve traditional building skills.

implement a programme of educational activities for children.

Trusts and Foundations have recently helped to fund

-the rescue and restoration of a Georgian villa in Dorset.

 -exceptional work at our existing buildings, such as repair work following storm damage in    extreme weather conditions at coastal properties.

-a programme to eradicate rhododendron, an invasive plant on Lundy, which is threatening native species.

-our work generally. Some trusts and foundations award grants for us to use where the need is greatest.
