A bit more about us:
We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether
improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to
promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver
practical solutions to the real life challenges they face.
For over 60 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of
communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered
them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.
Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and
places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.
