The Country Trust

The Country Trust is a national children’s educational charity which for over 30 years has been taking children from deprived urban areas out to the country; to farms, forests and working estates. Last year, we took 30,000 children to farms for day and week long visits.

The Country Trust’s scheme is simple, cost-effective and unique. We arrange for schools selected by the Trust from disadvantaged areas of towns and cities to visit hosts chosen by the Trust for their ability to offer children a stimulating glimpse of life in the countryside. The hosts make no charge for these visits, the Trust organizes the visits and helps the schools with the cost of transport and accommodation.
