North of England Civic Trust is a charitable organisation working across the North East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria. In recent years we have delivered nearly £10 million of projects, generating jobs in areas of deprivation and contributing to the local economy.

As a civic trust we champion public involvement in the processes that shape the environment, often working with local groups. As a building preservation trust, we tackle dereliction on the high street and in the countryside, from modest local landmarks to the rescue of nationally important heritage on the brink of being lost. As a consultancy, we provide independent expert advice to all those who need it, brokering solutions to sensitive development issues and securing the resources needed to convert liabilities into assets. As a charitable company, NECT is overseen by its board of trustees, all of whom work voluntarily, in their own time, for the Trust.
