The Asda Foundation supports small, grass roots organisations in several ways throughout the year. Working with Asda’s Community Champions in store, they are able to work with a range of organisations and groups on a variety of local community projects.
CPRE have published the results of research which looked at the impact of the Local Green Space (LGS) designation, introduced a decade ago, which allows local people to protect places of special value to the community.
The LGS designation offers the same level of protection as Green Belt or National Park status. In the past decade, 6,515 LGS have been designated, over 80% partly for their recreational value - highlighting their importance for people seeking outdoor exercise which is so important for their health and wellbeing.
The People and Nature Survey for England has released new monthly indicators looking at the impact of COVID-19 on people's enjoyment, access and attitudes to the natural environment and its contributions to wellbeing. The data published on the 9th February 2022 was collected during 1st - 31th January 2022.
Indicators for January 2022 have been published as Official Statistics and generated using specific weighting methods. For more information please see our brief statement.
Key findings can be seen below, for all monthly interim indicator results please see the full publication.
