Welcome to

South West London Environment Network


A charity helping people and organisations who protect and enhance the environment. We work in the London Boroughs of Richmond upon Thames and Kingston upon Thames.

We help environmental groups to start, operate, find volunteers, raise funds, get insured, share good practices and collaborate. Many of these groups manage or help to manage parks or open spaces.

If you need help with an environmental project see our Supporting environmental groups and Help for a group pages or email us. 

To find out about local environmental groups, see Looking for a group? or see our map of groups and projects in Richmond upon Thames.
