Landscape desecrated by climate change.

Who we are

Working together

We are charities, funders and organisations supporting the sector, working on social and environmental issues around the UK. We vary in our sub-sectors, our geographical reach, and our size, however we all believe that action on the social impacts of the environmental crises require urgent and collective action. Together we are more than the sum of our parts.

Get involved

There are multiple ways to get involved, as outlined below, and we’re always open to suggestions for partnership working. We recognise that capacity and funding are stretched in all organisations so seek to keep demands on time low and to mitigate financial barriers to engagement wherever grant funding allows.

Strand advisory groups

Each strand of the programme considers the impact of the climate and nature crises on one social group. Social and environmental charities are collaborating within each group. All partners take an advisory role, invited to coordination meetings and with the opportunity to feed into programme development and delivery. Some partners take a more active role in delivering grant funded work, such as running deliberation groups to see the views of the people affected. Our current strand partners as follows and we are open to new partners at any time:

Youth strand partners: Action for ChildrenAction for ConservationBarnardo’s; Children in Wales; GirlguidingGroundworkPrinces Trust; SOS-UK, UK Youth Climate Coalition; UpRisingWoodcraft Folk, and WWF. Our lead partner is Groundwork.

Ethnic minorities strand partners: the Ethnic Minority Environmental Network (EMEN) in Scotland, and our lead partner the Race Equality Foundation. 

Disabled people and older people’s strand partners: Disability Rights UK, Independent Age, Surrey Coalition of Disabled People, Reengage, and U3A

People experiencing health inequalities strand partners (under formation): Asthma + Lung; British Heart Foundation; MindParkinson’s UKRace Equality FoundationRethink; and the Wildlife Trusts. 

People living in poverty strand partners (under formation): The Working Class Climate Alliance. The strand partners group is under formation, please get in touch if you would like to be involved?

Shared Learning Group

The Shared Learning Group is our programme oversight and advisory group. It supports shared learning across and outside of the Everyone’s Environment programme.

The Shared Learning group plays a key role in overseeing the programme’s engagement with the sector and building a shared learning base across the programme strands that embraces intersectionality. Much of the impact of the climate and nature crises will be due to multiple injustices and societal barriers, including susceptibility to health impacts, experience of discrimination, and likelihood of living in a low-income household. We recognise that having separate strands looking at specific social groups could limit recognition of intersectionality, so we have measures in place to address this.

It composed of lead partners for each strand of the programme plus key infrastructure bodies. It is co-chaired by Richard Benwell of Wildlife and Countryside Link and Rukaiya Jeraj of UpRising. Other members are: ACF; ACEVO; EFNNCVO; SCVO; Wales Environment Link; Reach Volunteering; William Grant Foundation; City Bridge Trust; and Children in Need.
