Charity information

Warley Woods Community Trust

Warley Woods Community Trust is the first charity in the UK to take on responsibility for running an urban park. The Trust is responsible for the management and maintenance of this 100 acre park, woodland and public golf course. The park holds an important historical place in the local community and has been loved by many generations of local families.

The Trust is not just interested in maintaining a place for people to visit - it wants to ensure it is a community hub - in practice, this means encouraging as many people as possible to become members, to become volunteers or take part in an event in the park. It means working with schools, local societies and individuals to offer them opportunities to be part of Warley Woods and part of their local communities.

The Trust has a lease for 99 years and plans to ensure the park thrives as a community focus for generations to come.
