Who we are

We are CPRE, the countryside charity, representing the county of Warwickshire, including Coventry, Solihull and a major part of the city of Birmingham.

We’re working for a countryside that’s rich in nature, accessible to everyone and playing a crucial role in responding to the climate emergency. We are the local CPRE branch in Warwickshire, advocating for the kind of countryside we all aspire to: one with sustainable, healthy communities and available to more people than ever, including those who haven’t benefited before. We stand for a countryside that enriches all of our lives, nourishing our wellbeing, and that we in turn nourish, protect and celebrate.

Unlike many environmental charities, CPRE has no vested interests – we own no land, rely solely on donations and grants, and are politically independent.

We’ve worked for almost a century to support and promote the countryside, and we’ll be doing this for generations to come. That’s why we call ourselves ‘the countryside charity’.
