Help us co-create a regenerative, flourishing future for all species

Embercombe is a registered charity

Embercombe came into being thanks to an act of amazing generosity and continues to rely on the gifts of  hundreds of people in order to flourish and grow.

Our work would not be possible without the generous support that so many people provide in so many ways, including the thousands of hours of time that people give voluntarily each year and the many friends and supporters who help us financially.

Each donation we receive supports our rewilding and environmental conservation work, develops our sustainability partnerships with local communities, develops our online nature education programmes, supports our volunteers to thrive and helps us share the message of Embercombe across the world. Donations also contribute to our Bursary Fund which offers subsidised places to individuals and community organisations, ensuring that someone’s financial situation need not be a barrier to taking part in one of our life-changing and affirming programmes.

We invite you to make a donation now to help us meet the costs of delivering our life-changing work. You can also make a donation over the phone using a credit or debit card by calling us on +44 (0)1647 252983. If you have any questions please call us on +44 (0)1647 252983 or email
