The Field Studies Council (est. 1943) provides tutors and equipment for deprived children to study nature when they couldn’t otherwise.

Our charity only has funding to support one third of the children asking for our help.

Schools, families and the Government are struggling to support the huge increase in demand for high quality environmental education.

Now our charity is raising money to help the thousands of children who can’t otherwise spend a day at our unique environmental centres and access the resources they need.

Please donate today to educate the next generation to protect nature upon which we all depend

“Something clicked. Maybe it was Bio-Blitzing or sweep netting the long grass. I was in awe of the identification skills of the tutors… The exploration, the fresh air, the use of field guides and searching for different species.”

What will my donation achieve

During a climate change and the biodiversity crisis, our charity is enabling a generation of children to experience nature first-hand to protect the environment, improve their wellbeing, and live sustainably.  

Every pound you donate helps disadvantaged children who are unable to access education courses and related study guides. We employ educationalists passionate about the environment. 

This includes our popular grants so children can attend education courses at special learning locations in natural environments. This support is given on fair criteria and last several years to embed outdoor education in a school culture.

“The boys began to appreciate that knowledge, skills and learning can be accessed in the immediate environment… this raised their confidence. They saw that learning is for everyone.”

“The students said how much easier the exam was because they could remember the different parts of the river… because they saw it first-hand.”
