At Naturesave we have been wondering how we can help improve biodiversity. Then we found this fantastic well-researched blog by entomologist Read More
The Naturesave Trust was established in 1995 as the charitable arm of Naturesave Insurance.
As part of Naturesave’s environmental commitment, 10% of the following insurance policies is paid directly into a trust fund, which is then used to benefit specific environmental, conservation and community renewable energy projects and charities throughout the UK:
- Home Buildings, Contents & Renewable Energy Systems Insurance
- Personal Annual Travel Insurance
- Personal Accident & Illness insurance
- Group Travel & Personal Accident / Illness insurance
- Excess Buy Back insurance
- Small Scale Renewable Energy Insurance
The Trust has funded hundreds of projects since it’s inception, ranging from installation of a wind turbine at a school to the conservation of water voles in Dorset. The Trust prefers to provide start-up capital to small projects to get them going, rather than to contribute to the general administration costs of a larger charity or company.
For more information on specific projects we have funded to date, please visit Projects Funded by Naturesave Trust.
The Naturesave Trust also helps to fund the ‘greening’ of Naturesave’s commercial clients by paying for a surveyor to conduct an Environmental Performance Review (EPR) at their premises. This not only helps these businesses and organisations to become more environmentally sustainable in their trading practices, but may also help them save money in the long run by reducing waste and cutting down on consumption.

Criteria for funding
The Naturesave Trust will consider applications for specific projects from Charities, Companies or Organisations whose activities are based within the UK. Unfortunately we are unable to accept applications from individuals or for non-UK based projects.
Projects are chosen by the Trust on an individual basis according to how well they fit with the Trust’s criteria and objectives.
There are no deadlines for applications, and no limits on the number of applications you can make.
