Welcome to South West London Environment Network
We are a charity supporting people, voluntary groups, charities and schools who protect and enhance the environment and solve environmental problems. We work mainly in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and are looking to increase the services we can offer to communities and groups in Hounslow and Kingston boroughs.
Our expertise helps environmental groups to start, operate, develop, recruit volunteers, raise funds, get insured, share good practices and collaborate. We provide information about these groups to those seeking environmental and conservation volunteering opportunities.
Have a look at our new map of environmental groups and projects in Richmond upon Thames.
Our other activities include:
- A free Environmental Audit Service for community groups, charities, homes and schools to help them reduce energy, water and waste costs and to develop environmental policies.
Supporting food growing projects.
The Mortlake Block Champions Project. Anyone living in any of 9 blocks of flats in Mortlake owned by RHP can benefit from free advice and free equipment to help reduce fuel bills.
Running environmental audits of homes by working with Smart Communities, a Kingston University project working with residents in the Tudor area of North Kingston to help lower their energy use.
Organising fundraising events for groups we support.

Many of the upcoming events below are seeking volunteers and are run by environmental groups in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. We are looking for volunteers for some of the gardens participating in the Gardens Festival 2013 and details are on our volunteering pages.
We recently organised a sponsored walk from the Thames Barrier to Teddington Lock to raise money for the Ham Hydro project and SWLEN. You can still donate! Further information
