About Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

We’re a growing charity committed to achieving a vision of a Wilder Derbyshire.

As are a registered Charity, we are supported by over 17,000 members and are part of a movement of 46 Wildlife Trusts.

Our purpose is to achieve our vision of a Wilder Derbyshire by creating Nature Recovery Networks, rewilding, and reintroducing lost species. As more people connect with wildlife, we’re working to build a strong, cohesive movement, inspiring people and communities to care and mobilising people to act. All our work is underpinned by our values.

Our Charity is growing, we currently employ 85 people and, crucially, we are supported by over 500 volunteers.

We recognise that there are barriers within our society that can prevent some communities and people from engaging with the opportunities we offer. We strive to offer opportunities for engagement, participation and employment to achieve equality. In particular, our focus is on dismantling barriers for those from Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority backgrounds and LGBTQ+ people, so everyone can feel more welcome.

We wholeheartedly believe that nature belongs to everyone.
