Our mission – to provide everyone in Edinburgh and the Lothians with access to quality greenspaces, which can help to improve their health & wellbeing

Covid-19 Update

ELGT realise the spread of Coronavirus is a difficult and worrying time for everyone and I can assure that we are following all the current advice and information from Health Protection Scotland and the UK and Scottish Governments.

Due to the current Covid-19 situation all external community activities have been suspended and our project delivery on the ground.

Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust staff are currently working from home. However, we are keen to keep in contact with the communities that we work with and will be updating our website and social media once we have a clearer idea of timescales.

In addition we will endeavour to continue posting , on Facebook, activities that people can do at home to help them to stay motivated.

I hope that this is of some reassurance to you and if there is anything else you think we could do, or if you would like to discuss things further, then please do not hesitate to get in touch through our contact page.

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 providing a comprehensive portfolio of environmental project development, management and fundraising services, we help ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy their natural environment.
