About The Land Trust

Green Angels first started out in Liverpool, funded through the BIG Lottery “Reaching Communities” grant fund. The Green Angels programme aims to:
· Provide training in new skills, and volunteering opportunities, and inspire a sense of pride and achievement through tangible improvements to a local open space
· Promote healthy living though encouraging active involvement in outdoor pursuits
· Stimulate social cohesion by involving the local community in the management and care of a park
· Improve the local environment through habitat creation, creating oases for wildlife.
