The Conservation Fund 

In recent years our core small grant scheme has helped over 50 community groups across the Shropshire Hills deliver 70 conservation projects involving more than 1000 people.  Each year our seed funding delivers more than two and a half times its value in additional income and volunteering time – often very much more. The projects our carefully-structured application and approval system supports: 

  • Deliver effective, locally-led wildlife, heritage and landscape conservation; 
  • Bring communities together in supportive networks with a shared sense of purpose; 
  • Engage a wide range of young people and groups in worthwhile volunteering; 
  • Build valuable nature recovery knowledge, skills and enthusiasm across the Area; and, 
  • Kickstart activities which frequently multiply into much more ambitious initiatives;

Fix the Fort Appeal 

We are also addressing serious erosion on the Iron Age hillfort that crowns the iconic Caer Caradoc with a high-profile appeal to fund contractors and volunteers to repair its ramparts and harden paths against further damage.

Shuttle Bus Supporters’ Scheme 

Our scheme helps keep the Shropshire Hills shuttle bus running across the Long Mynd and Stiperstones on summer weekends, allowing people to enjoy the area in a climate-friendly way and reducing the burden of traffic on roads and popular locations.
