We are passionate about the Jurassic Coast and want to safeguard it – both today and for future generations. We work alongside the Jurassic Coast Team and our other partners to deliver a range of different projects. In particular, we are guided by the belief that the Jurassic Coast is best looked after by the people who use it and love it – people who live here, work here or visit. Our Growing the Jurassic Coast Community, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, is inspiring and training people to play their part and to generate long term sustainable support four our World Heritage Site.

As a charity we are hugely grateful for the help and support we get from our brilliant Ambassadors, Volunteers, Friends and Business Partners. Without generous donations and people giving up their time for free, we would not be able to operate.

If you love the Jurassic Coast why not get involved – there are many ways in which you can play your part. Or consider making a donation to support our work – at least 80p of every £1 you give us will be spent on projects to support the Jurassic Coast (we keep our running costs as low as we can).

Our registered charity number is 1101134. For formal information about us, read our Chairman’s Reports and accounts. Or to stay in touch with us and hear our news, sign up to our mailing list or follow the Jurassic Coast on social media.
