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.

Fields in Trust is an independent charity with over 95 years' experience protecting parks and green spaces. We work with landowners, community groups and policy makers to champion the value of our parks and green spaces to achieve better protection for their future at both local and national level.

People enjoying their park

"Until now, I've always considered we are custodians of green space that belongs to our children. But it's becoming clear that it is far more than that. It's also about biodiversity, our climate, our environment, or physical and mental health, our own space we all need be it for time out, socialising or 'social distancing' and much more."

Roy Wilson, Eden District Council

We operate from a pleasant, accessible office in Shepherd's Bush, about 300 metres from Central Line and Overground stations (not step free - one step/pavement).
