Natural Enterprise

an economic and environmental partnership

Passionate about making a difference

As a Charitable Trust, we provide a wide range of services, both locally and regionally. This includes conservation work, project delivery, through to delivering and managing rural & economic development grant funding programmes.

Our team combines expertise in community engagement, sustainable development, business support, project management and communications, with the depth and range of experience to deliver practical solutions for our clients and partners. Natural Enterprise bridges the different perspectives of the public and private sectors, the economy and the environment and, similarly, we can draw upon our partners to ensure that in all our work there is a clear focus on delivering value and meeting requirements for our clients. 

Based on the Isle of Wight, Natural Enterprise’s profits are reinvested for the sole benefit of the Island, its communities and countryside. We will continue to make a positive difference to the communities we live and work in, contributing our resource, energy and expertise.
