Country Trust to make the next twelve months a Year of Opportunity for Children

We will be working harder than ever to make a difference for the children who have missed out most due to COVID-19. We are calling on government to help us to ensure every child has the opportunity to: visit a real working farm, to discover the connections between the food they eat, their own health and the health of the planet, and to develop the confidence and curiosity to explore the living world.
