We’ve been stepping forward for the countryside throughout our existence and our work at national and local level is continuing to make an impact.

However you support us, through your time, voice or money, you’ll be joining a movement that is proud of the work we’ve done to help people live, work and play in the countryside we have today and is continually contributing to making sure we have a thriving and beautiful countryside that everyone can enjoy into the future.

Our big successes of recent years are highlighted below and you can see a run through of our whole history on the decades listed. We’ve also shared our most recent annual reviews so you can see the variety of work in which we’re involved.
