About the Jurassic Coast Trust

The Jurassic Coast Trust works with partners to support a diverse range of education, conservation, arts, and science projects along the length of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

The Trust is strongly focussed on helping people understand and enjoy the Site. It raises money through different levels of support including large and small businesses, individuals, project sponsors, and the sale of publications.

The Trust's objectives:

  • To educate the public on the importance of the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Site
  • To conserve the World Heritage Site for public benefit
  • To encourage sustainable economic regeneration

We inspire people to appreciate and learn more about the significance of the Jurassic Coast and to safeguard it for future generations by supporting projects that enhance and expand the understanding of world heritage, and the international importance of this unique coastline. We hope that you will join us to help raise funds in order to achieve this.
