Our impact 

2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but thanks to your support our charitable work continued to make a real difference across the Dales and beyond. In 2020 the impact of our work reached some of the most vulnerable people in our rural communities, helped to protect and enhance our spectacular landscape and precious wildlife.

Here are some of our highlights from 2020: 

  • 11,505 people were estimated to have benefitted from our Coronavirus Community Fund - receiving help when they needed it the most. 

  • 1,101 young people were inspired to care about the natural world and to get out into the countryside to learn new skills and 143 people were given inspirational learning opportunities in the Dales, alongside many more in virtual events.

  • 27,508 trees were planted, creating 19.73 hectares of new woodland. 27 hectares of hay meadows were restored or regenerated, increasing biodiversity and providing a vital food resource for pollinators.

  • 1,050 metres of iconic drystone walls were built and restored - and 3 caves were cleaned to maintain their environment.
