About us

The Your Shore Beach Rangers project is one of 31 Our Bright Future projects across the UK. Each one  equipping 11-24 year olds to make a difference in their local community and for the environment. Our Bright Future is a £33 million programme funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund and is a partnership led by The Wildlife Trusts.

The Beach Rangers programme is delivered  in partnership by Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Cornwall College Newquay.  

Cornwall Wildlife Trust manages and runs the project using its expertise in developing the Your Shore model of community engagement to involve young people and additional geographical locations. The charity also provides expertise in marine nature conservation.

Cornwall College Newquay provides the expertise to develop the Beach Rangers Academy, validating the scheme where required and certifying skills and experience gained through the programme.

The project teams from both organisations work together to ensure we successfully meet our objectives and outputs, which is to engage with:

  • 180 Beach Rangers
  • 2,400 school children (11-16)
  • 10,000 members of the local community and business
