The Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust (ELGT) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for our communities by re-connecting people with their local green spaces.
We believe that quality local greenspaces have a positive impact on the health and well-being of individuals. Our inspiring, ground-breaking and imaginative programme of environmental and community projects enables us to work for the benefit of people, wildlife, landscape and heritage.
We work at a local level to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy their natural environment, developing innovative solutions for the benefit of the area, people, landscape, heritage and wildlife.
Since 1991 we have been working to improve greenspaces for the benefit of people through practical environmental and educational projects in partnership with local communities and health-focused initiatives as a way to support more people getting outdoors. Our projects are designed to benefit people, wildlife, landscape and heritage and to help connect people with their natural environment.
By offering a comprehensive portfolio of professional environmental project development, management and fundraising services, we work hard to help ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy their natural environment.
