We are a charity and rely on membership, legacy gifts and donations from our supporters and on the efforts of our 300 regular volunteers to deliver our mission.

We manage 50 nature reserves – vital havens for wildlife and places to be discovered and enjoyed by all – but our work extends well beyond their boundaries.

Through ‘landscape scale’ conservation projects such as Working Wetlands or the Devon Bat Project we work with and across communities and landscapes in Devon, helping farmers and land owners to manage their land for the benefit of wildlife.

Urban projects, like Exeter Wild City, create urban wildflower meadows, ponds and wildlife-friendly gardens. Our Wildlife Champions network engages and inspires 10,000 children a year to love wildlife and take action for its benefit.

LGBTQ+ Network

Come talk to us at the LGBTQ+ Staff Network stall in the Streatham Forum, and in the quad in St Luke's to find out who we are and what we do around campus!

 

We believe it's important to help create an inclusive environment for all sexual orientations and gender identities within the University.

We also want to offer a visible and accessible source of support as whilst many people may be comfortable with their own sexual orientation and gender identities and that of others, this may be not be the case for everyone.

 

Come talk to us in the Forum or the Quad!

You can make your salary go a lot further with a Car Benefits Scheme from Tusker.

We offer salary sacrifice cars to staff of the university, which they can access as part of their benefits package.

As an employee benefits, you get to offset some of your salary in exchange for a brand new car. It’s a great little perk and means you can enjoy a nice new set of wheel without any deposit or ongoing running costs including road tax, insurance, MOTs, breakdown assistance and repair bills. In fact all you need to do is put some fuel in the tank.

craft

Come see us at our stall in Streatham to find out more about what we're all about, the charity knits we're involved with, and perhaps even have a go yourself! Whether you're a seasoned knitter or you've never weilded a knitting needle before, come and have a chat and see the benefits for yourself!

 

The Staff Wool Craft Group are an informal group of like-minded knitters and crocheters of all abilities and from all walks of university life, and one of Staff Life's open groups. They are a weekly drop in group that provides an opportunity to meet other crafty colleagues, share tips and get advice. You can bring your own project or contribute to charity knitting projects. 

Human beings have always enjoyed making things together, in groups.  Such group activities play many roles in our lives – they provide us with a safe space to be in with other people who are like us; they bring us companionship, and facilitate the sharing of problems and concerns in a non-judgmental atmosphere; and they allow us to take part in the making of something that can be of value to others.  Each of these benefits – being in a safe space, sharing and caring for each other, and altruistic activities, are known to improve health and wellbeing. 

— Professor Paul Dieppe, Professor of Health and Wellbeing, University of Exeter.
