Bankside Open Spaces Trust is an environmental and volunteering charity.
We were set up by a group of local people with an aim to improve the
SE1 area, making it a greener, more beautiful place to live and work.
We manage and maintain open spaces, welcome volunteers from both the community and the corporate sector, run regular gardening groups, support park steering groups, organise and take part in public events and educational projects, and offer advice to others. We collaborate closely with local residents and businesses to champion green spaces.
Our spaces have won more than 32 awards, including the UNESCO Man and Biosphere award, London in Bloom Champion of Champions and the MPGA London Spade for our community gardening partnerships.
