Our Partners

Working with Partners

We could not achieve our vision of a thriving natural world across Leicestershire and Rutland without working with partners of all shapes and sizes. We work with landowners, companies, lotteries, grant-making Trusts, and local communities who all support our strategic ambitions to bring wildlife back, to empower people to take action for nature and to create a society where nature matters.

We believe that people taking action in the places where they live and work is a powerful force for change so through all of our relationships we look to achieve local impact.
