Fields in Trust champions and supports our parks and green spaces by protecting them for people to enjoy in perpetuity. Because once green spaces are lost, they are lost forever.
Fields in Trust is the only UK-wide charity legally protecting parks and green spaces in perpetuity and this protection is the only way to guarantee we keep these vulnerable spaces for future generations. The challenges facing owners and managers of parks and green spaces are now arguably greater than ever before. Pressure on local authority budgets and the need for new housing are resulting in an increasingly uncertain position for this non-statutory service. Parks and green spaces are not simply nice to have; they are a necessity for healthy, happy communities positively impacting on a range of key wellbeing issues from physical and mental health to social cohesion.
