The Conservation Volunteers


Who We Are
The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) is a conservation charity set up in 1959. TCV helps hundreds of thousands of people each year to reclaim local green places. Through our own environmental projects and through our network of 2,000 community groups, we see people – every day, and all across the UK – taking responsibility for their own local environments.

What we do
We work with young people aged 16-18 to help them gain qualifications in practical countryside management. We run two courses aimed at improving confidence and skills while working outdoors on conservation projects around Wakefield.
Activities include:
– Footpath construction
– Fencing
– Tree felling and planting.
– Dry stone walling
– Woodland management

We run projects Monday to Friday leaving from our centre at Chantry Bridge from 9.30am and returning around 2pm.
