The Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust is the only charity in Scilly which manages land for people and wildlife. The Trust has responsibility for managing half the land across the isles, being central to the partnership that promotes enjoyment and appreciation of the Isles of Scilly National Landscape.

The new project will recruit community volunteers and upskill them to become decision-makers for nature recovery. The project will be led by a new full-time Community Ranger who will manage a programme of activities that will broaden the range of people connecting to nature and safeguarding Scilly’s wildlife through the Wildlife Trust’s work. The programme will ensure wild spaces are more accessible, with a strong focus on supporting young people, people affected by loneliness and people who would benefit from being more active outdoors.
