Supporting UK Conservation

The Trust is proud to work have worked with several respected organisations around the UK, supporting them in their mission to conserve and restore our national landscape. 

Partners and organisations who have received support from PDHCT include:

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is part of the influential UK-wide partnership of 47 Wildlife Trusts. They have worked for more than 65 years to protect wildlife and wild places, and educate, influence and empower people.

Beginning in 2009, PDHCT has donated significant funds to help build YWT’s management capacity, as well as funding projects to deliver innovative work benefitting Yorkshire’s wildlife and community. Previously the Trust also supported London Wildlife Trust programmes to help the wildlife of the capital to respond to climate change, completing a major report into adapting to climate change and also building organisational capacity to better manage its nature reserves.

Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust

Wildlife and the environment have come under increasing pressure over the last 50 years in the UK and the losses of both species and habitats have been significant in Leicestershire and Rutland. 

PHDCT is proud to have supported the work of LRWT as they expanded and developed their work to protect and enhance wildlife and wilderness, and engage the local community in their efforts.

We have benefitted greatly from the support of the Trust, which has enabled us to build capacity on a sustained basis.

Simon Bentley, Chief Executive of Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust

John Muir Trust

Founded in 1983, the John Muir Trust takes its inspiration from John Muir (1838-1914), the Scots-born founder of the modern conservation movement. PDHCT is glad to have supported this unique trust in its mission to protect wild land in the UK. 

Funds donated have allowed the John Muir Trust to build its advocacy capacity around climate change and sustainable communities.
