People, Landscape and Wildlife
Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is an independent charity doing big things to help protect and enhance the People, Landscape and Wildlife of the Dales.
The Yorkshire Dales is a precious and unique landscape and a vital resource for people and nature. We work passionately and practically to make sure it stays that way – delivering projects directly, raising money to enable others to deliver projects and working in partnership to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Everything we do is shaped by our four values:
- Enabling: We make real practical things happen and are approachable, collaborative and inclusive, valuing people’s opinions in everything we do
- Caring: We are passionate about supporting the people, landscape and wildlife of the Yorkshire Dales and are committed to being sustainable
- Creative: We thrive on new challenges and act with entrepreneurial spirit in order to make a positive difference to this special area
- Honest: We always act with integrity and are open, clear and fair in everything we do.
Our core priorities
TO SUPPORT PEOPLE TO VISIT, LIVE SUSTAINABLY AND CARE FOR THIS SPECIAL AREA
We work in partnership with local people to support a vibrant economy and stronger communities, with more opportunities for people to gain new skills to live and work in the Dales.
We work hard to make sure everyone can access, appreciate and enjoy this special place. In this way we hope to inspire them to value and help look after it in future.
