We want a UK rich in woods and trees, for people and wildlife. We rely on the generosity and enthusiasm of supporters like you to help us protect, restore and plant woods and trees.

Everyone who stands up for trees with us – whether as a member, by giving a donation, by offering us their time or just by spreading the word – should have a positive and rewarding experience and know how much we value them.

Who are the Woodland Trust?

We are the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity. We’re passionate about woods and trees. We work to transform our landscapes, joining up fragile and fragmented habitats. We campaign to save threatened woodland and we own and care for more than 1,000 publicly accessible woods. We want everyone to have access to woodland and we want to make the UK a healthier, better place to live.

We will protect your data

We will only contact you via methods we have received your consent for us to use and you can contact our Support Services Response Team any time you wish to change the way we contact you or opt out of future communications.

We are respectful

We will not put undue pressure on you to make a gift; if you do not wish to donate we will respect your decision. We will never assume you agree with an element of our cause without you raising your hand, and therefore never put undue pressure on you to volunteer your time, or partake in a campaigning action.

We are accountable

We do all we can to ensure fundraisers, volunteers and third party agencies working with us comply with all fundraising regulations, this promise and our privacy policy. Where we work with third party agencies we will ensure training is provided and will monitor their work. We will act quickly if they do not meet the high standards we set.

We keep in touch

If you are unhappy with anything we’ve done you can contact us for feedback and complaints. If we make a mistake we will apologise and do all we can to put things right and if we cannot resolve your complaint, we accept the authority of the Fundraising Regulator and the Charity Commission to make a final adjudication.

Remember, you can change the way you hear from us or withdraw your permission for us to contact you at any time by contacting us or using the preference portal.
