Fields in Trust champions and supports parks and green spaces nationally by protecting them for people to enjoy in perpetuity. Because once lost, they are lost forever.
Parks and green spaces in the UK are under threat and it is up to all of us to stem this cycle of disappearance and decline. We believe that everyone, irrespective of who they are and where they live should have the right to enjoy and benefit from local parks and green spaces.
Parks and green spaces are proven to help people stay physically and mentally well; places where we can all move, breathe, run and play. They are an important tool to drive social cohesion, combat loneliness and build community spirit.
Fields in Trust is an independent charity with over 90 years experience protecting parks and green spaces. They work with landowners, community groups and policymakers to champion the value of our parks and green spaces to achieve better protection for their future at both local and national level.
