About this cause

We work with Lancashire Wildlife Trust to inspire the local communities to restore and care for the historic area of Chat Moss. We are creating a reconnected living landscape, reintroducing species lost to the mosses, enriching habitats for vulnerable wildlife and providing exciting green spaces to enjoy. We aim to improve the wellbeing and environment for the communities of Irlam and Cadishead.

How this cause brings people in the community together

By creating a safe, welcoming green space for all to enjoy, we are encouraging people to get outdoors, which is known to boost both mental and physical wellbeing. Through sociable volunteer days, the community will come together to improve their local green spaces. Bringing together a wide range of people to work towards one goal will strengthen links within the community.
