Habitats & Heritage is the local charity that acts for the natural and historic environment in south and west London. Our mission is to protect and restore our threatened rivers, green spaces, parks and historic built environment for the benefit of the whole community, for this and future generations. The synergy between habitats and heritage goals lies at the heart of what we do.

We are based in Twickenham and work across the London Boroughs of Richmond, Hounslow, Kingston, Wandsworth, Ealing, Sutton and Merton. Community engagement, education and involvement is key to achieving our aims.


Our vision is a restored and extensive natural and historical heritage for the people of south and west London. We are passionate about enriching and connecting degraded and isolated green spaces across our urban landscape and to restoring and maintaining neglected historical structures and landscapes that would otherwise fall to ruin or disappear. We want to make those special local places accessible and inviting to all to explore, enjoy and feel part of.

We promote an accessible and inclusive approach to our environmental and historical heritage and seek to deepen people’s sense of wellbeing, belonging and pride in place through learning and appreciation of their local environment. We promote sustainable lifestyles and recognise the inter-connectedness of all aspects of human activity.
