National Grid supports four Environmental Education Centres located on land adjacent to the electricity substations at Bishops Wood, Iver, Skelton and West Boldon. They provide outdoor education and have been developed in partnership with local authorities and environmental charities, such as Field Studies Council.
The four Centres provide outdoor education to approximately 23,500 visitors each year, ranging from school children to adult learners. Many more are engaged through outreach programmes. Each Centre also works to meet National Grid's commitment to operating as both a socially and environmentally responsible business.
Each Centre also helps to improve the environmental status and biodiversity of the land on which National Grid operates and demonstrates community investment by providing work for staff and volunteers.
