Working alongside the AONB Partnership, the AONB Trust supports activities which protect the wildlife and heritage of the Shropshire Hills, and enables local people, businesses and organisations to become involved in caring for the countryside around them.
Money raised by the Trust is distributed to projects in the community. Most of it is given in small grants through the AONB Conservation Fund, but the Trust also has public appeals for specific projects.
Follow the links to find out more about the Trust's current activity:
Friends of the Shropshire Hills AONB – our membership scheme run jointly with the AONB Partnership. All membership fees go directly into the AONB Conservation Fund.
AONB Conservation Fund – this is a small grant pot to support projects which help conserve, enhance and raise awareness of the Shropshire Hills landscape. The Fund is now open for applications to next year’s round of funding. Deadline for applications is 6th March 2020.
Fix the Fort Appeal - we need to raise £10,000 to fix Caer Caradoc’s worn-down ramparts.
Shuttle Bus Supporters – a simple way for passengers to support our seasonal Long Mynd & Stiperstones Shuttle Bus service.
There are many ways to support the Shropshire Hills and the work of the AONB Trust, from giving a donation to becoming a Trustee.
