Making a difference to the community and their environment through volunteering, education & play
Skelton Grange Environment Centre is part of The Conservation Volunteers, a charity working to create healthier, happier communities for everyone. Skelton Grange was established in 1992 and is proud to have engaged over 200,000 people with the natural world, inspiring them to make a positive difference to their community and local environment.Why the community needs us
Your donation will be used to support our work. This could be providing volunteers with training, work experience and support to run education and conservation activities, improving their life skills and employability. Or adults and children from the wider community can enjoy education days and events in a beautiful nature area in a part of Leeds otherwise lacking in green space. With your support everyone can join in and feel good about making a difference!Our impact on the community
Over 6000 adults & children a year - primarily those disadvantaged by having little access to green space - can learn about and enjoy their environment. We use the natural environment to provide accessible, stimulating, confidence-building and memorable experiences to people, some of whom have very challenging and demanding lives. Volunteers also gain confidence through learning and work experience, and feel able to make a real difference to their local environment and communities.
We welcome long term and occasional volunteers interested in the environment, education and practical conservation. We support longer term volunteers who can commit up to 4 days/week for a few months, or pop in on Fridays for gardening and fun!
