Habitats & Heritage awarded Historic England funding

Habitats & Heritage is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a further Capacity Building grant from Historic England.

Their ongoing support will enable Habitats & Heritage to continue to engage the Heritage Project Manager, as well as appoint a new Heritage Project Officer. Together they will work to conserve buildings on the Heritage at Risk Register within South and West London, and deliver innovate activities that increase and diversify the people participating in heritage.

Colin Cooper, Chief Executive of Habitats & Heritage, says “I am very excited Habitats & Heritage has received this funding and support from Historic England. It will enable the charity to play a greater role in enriching the extensive natural and historical heritage in South and West London, building on the important connections between them. We will make the historic environment more accessible and inviting to all to explore, actively experience, participate and feel part of. We would like to thank Historic England for their ongoing and generous support.”

About Habitats & Heritage

Habitats & Heritage is a newly formed charity following the merger of Environment Trust with South West London Environment Network in November 2020. We care for the natural and historic environment in south and west London, aiming to see nature flourish whilst protecting and enhancing south and west London’s historic environment.

We work to achieve this by:

  • Bringing people together to better understand, learn about, connect with and enjoy their local environment and heritage.
  • Empowering and mobilising communities to enhance and maintain the spaces they care about.
  • Encouraging accessibility and involvement to ensure everyone enjoys and experiences the positive health and wellbeing benefits from spending time in our natural and historic environment.

We are based in Twickenham and work across the London Boroughs of Richmond; Hounslow; Kingston; Wandsworth; Ealing; and Merton.

Habitats & Heritage is a registered charity (1140872).
