South West London Environment Network

We are a charity helping people and organisations who protect and enhance the environment. We work in the London Boroughs of Richmond upon Thames, Kingston upon Thames and Hounslow.

We help environmental groups to start, operate, find volunteers, raise funds, get insured, share good practices and collaborate. Many of these groups help to manage parks or open spaces.

If you need help with an environmental project see our Supporting environmental groups and Help for a group pages or email us. We are currently working to set up a new group with residents around Suffolk Road Recreation Ground, Barnes.

To find out about local environmental groups, see Looking for a group? or our map of groups and projects in Richmond upon Thames.


For voluntary work see Looking to volunteer? or email us.


SWLEN also: 

  • Runs community based projects to promote energy and waste reduction and an environmental audit service for homes, community groups, charities and schools to help reduce energy, water and waste costs. See our Smart Communities website for more information.
  • Chairs and acts as the Secretariat of Richmond Biodiversity Partnership.
  • Runs sustainability projects, particularly those  explaining the advantages of composting, recycling and waste reduction.


Many of the environmental events and activities listed on our Events Calendar seek volunteers and are run by environmental groups in Richmond Borough.
